Hubert Selby Jr's classic and controversial masterpiece of the wild underside of New York life
Hubert Selby Jr. was born in Brooklyn, New York. After leaving school he went to sea until illness forced him to leave the Merchant Marines. He began publishing stories in the 1950s, but it was the appearance of LAST EXIT TO BROOKLYN in the mid-sixties that brought him widespread recognition. On British publication the book was prosecuted for obscenity, but won its protracted court case on appeal. Hubert Selby's other works are THE ROOM (1971), THE DEMON (1973), REQUIEM FOR A DREAM (1978) and SONG OF THE SILENT SNOW (1986). He lives in Los Angeles, California.
