A vicious fifteen-year-old droog is the central character of this 1963 classic. In Anthony Burgess's nightmare vision of the future, where the criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that brilliantly renders his and his friends' social pathology. A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. When the state undertakes to reform Alex to "redeem" him, the novel asks, "At what cost?" This edition includes the controversial last chapter not published in the first edition and Burgess's introduction "A Clockwork Orange Resucked."

A brilliant novel... a savage satire on the distortions of the single and collective minds.
Looks like a nasty little shocker, but is really that rare thing in English letters: a philosophical novel.
A terrifying and marvelous book.--Roald Dahl
I do not know of any other writer who has done as much with language as Mr. Burgess has done here -- the fact that this is also a very funny book may pass unnoticed.--William S. Burroughs
A new critical edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of A Clockwork Orange - one of the most influential books of the twentieth century
