The first novel to articulate the rage and pain of life in "the other America, " "Last Exit to Brooklyn" is a classic of postwar American writing. Selby's searing portrait of the powerless, the homeless, the dispossessed, is a fiercely and frighteningly apposite today as when it was first published twenty-five years ago.

Review:

"An extraordinary achievement . . . a vision of hell so stern it cannot be chuckled or raged aside."--The New York Times Book Review

"As dramatic and immediate as the click of a switchblade knife."--Los Angeles Times

"The raw strength and concentrated power of Last Exit to Brooklyn make it one of the really great works of fiction about the underground labyrinth of our cities."--Harry T. Moore

"Last Exit to Brooklynshould explode like a rusty hellish bombshell over America and still be eagerly read in a hundred years."--Allen Ginsberg

"Drops like a sledgehammer. Emotionally beaten, one leaves it a different person--slightly changed, educated by pain, as Goethe said."--The Nation

"Selby has an unerring instinct for honing our collapse into novels as glittering and as cutting as pure, block, jagged glass."--Saturday Review

"Scorching, unrelenting, pulsing."--Newsweek

"The marriage of brutal street life and gorgeous bebop prose." --Richard Price, from his "My Five Most Essential Books," published in Newsweek (April 13, 2009)

From the Publisher:

Hubert Selby Jr's classic and controversial masterpiece of the wild underside of New York life.
