    DescriptionThe 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 quote
    "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 Brooklyn"should 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)
