Anthony Burgess(1917-1993) was one of the UK's leading academics and most respected literary figures. A prolific writer and translator, he is most famous for the complex and controversial novel A Clockwork Orange.Review:
'Both reader and author have marvellous fun. Some ten or dozen emperors or empresses are stabbed, hacked to pieces, poisoned or otherwise brutally murderred. Few varieties of curious sex are not given a showing. And as for the burning of Rome, throwing Christians to the lions, and the sacking of the temple at Jerusalem - what an opportunity they provide for Burgess's rumbustious style' SUNDAY TELEGRAPH
