9780141195667: Requiem for a Dream (Penguin Modern Classics)

Harry Goldfarb, heroin addict and son of lonely widow Sara, cares only about enjoying the good life with girlfriend Marion and best friend Tyrone C Love, and making the most of all the hash, poppers and dope they can get. Sara Goldfarb sits at home with the TV, dreaming of the life she could have and struggling with her own addictions - food and diet pills. But these four will pay a terrible price for the pleasures they believe they are entitled to. A passionate, heart-breaking tale of the crushing weight of hope and expectation, Requiem for a Dream is a dark modern-day fable of New York.

Product Description:

Requiem for a Dream

Review:

Selby's place is in the front rank of American novelists ... to understand his work is to understand the anguish of America (New York Times Book Review)

Selby deploys street slang, common speech, argot and scatology to create a high poetic art ... it seems to derive from the greatest American poetry--Whitman, Pound, Williams, and Olson (The Nation)

Selby brings a scorching light to a limited area of human existence, which most people know of but do not know (Newsweek)
