Last Exit to Brooklyn

by Hubert Selby

eBook

"An extraordinary achievement . . . a vision of hell so stern it cannot be chuckled or raged aside."—The New York Times Book Review A classic of postwar American literature, Last Exit to Brooklyn created shockwaves upon its release in 1964 with its raw, vibrant language and startling revelations of New York City's underbelly.    The prostitutes, drunks, addicts, and johns of Selby's Brooklyn are fierce and lonely creatures, desperately searching for a moment of transcendence amidst the decay and brutality of the waterfront—though none have any real hope of escape.    Last Exit to Brooklyn offers a disturbing yet hauntingly sensitive portrayal of American life, and nearly fifty years after publication, it stands as a crucial and masterful work of modern fiction.    This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby, Jr., including rare photos from the author's estate.
