Penguin Decades bring you the novels that helped shape modern Britain. When they were published, some were bestsellers, some were considered scandalous, and others were simply misunderstood. All represent their time and helped define their generation, while today each is considered a landmark work of storytelling.

Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange was published in 1962 and has been controversial ever since. It tells the story of fifteen-year-old Alex - whose chief preoccupations are Beethoven's Ninth and ultra-violence - as he and his droogs rampage though a dystopian future seeking thrills, until they come under the control of the state's sinister apparatus.

Review:

A gruesomely witty cautionary tale (Time)

Every generation should discover this book (Time Out)

Not only about man's violent nature and his capacity to choose between good and evil. It is about the excitements and intoxicating effects of language (Daily Telegraph)

I do not know of any other writer who has done as much with language...a very funny book (William S. Burroughs)

One of the cleverest and most original writers of his generation (The Times)

Book Description:

A new critical edition to celebrate the 50th anniversary of A Clockwork Orange - one of the most influential books of the twentieth century
