Overview

Based on the original edition. First published in the USA in 1957 and then again in 1961 and 1963, copyright not renewed in the 28th year following as required, therefore now public domain. This book was not first published in 1964 as commonly believed when it made a sensation on the literary scene but in the late '50s, which makes it even more daring and ahead of its time. Stylistically uncompromising and innovative, Hubert Selby's gritty notorious novel Last Exit to Brooklyn (1957) is a famously bleak, foul-mouthed and refreshingly modern and frank collection of six linked stories set in the violent neighbourhoods of Brooklyn. It was successfully filmed in 1990.
