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

First published by William Heinemann in 1962, A Clockwork Orange is the best known of Anthony Burgess's thirty-three remarkable novels, and is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century. For more than twenty years A Clockwork Orange circulated in two distinct editions with two different endings. This special edition to mark the 50th Anniversary of first publication restores the text of the novel as Burgess originally wrote it, along with a selection of interviews, articles, reviews and other previously unpublished material.

Featuring a biographical introduction by Andrew Biswell, Burgess's biographer -- examining the background to the novel's composition and its subsequent editorial and publication history -- this new edition also includes the full novel, newly edited from the 1961 typescript with the restoration of illustrations and music and a previously unpublished dramatic prologue from the Burgess archive in Austin, Texas.

This new edition places the novel within its immediate historical and cultural contexts and will be the definitive edition to excite critics and readers alike.

About the Author:

ANTHONY BURGESS was born in Manchester in 1917. He served in the army from 1940 to 1954 before becoming a colonial education officer. It was while he held this post that doctors told him he would die, and he decided to try to live by writing. He achieved a worldwide reputation as one of the leading novelists of his day, and one of the most versitile. His writings include criticism, scripts and translations, and a Broadway musical, and he composed three symphonies which have been publicly performed in the USA. His books have been published all over the world and include A Clockwork Orange, The Clockwork Testament, Inside Mr Enderby, Enderby's Dark Lady, Earthly Powers, Abba Abba and The End of the World News. Anthony Burgess died in 1993.

From AudioFile:

Anthony Burgess's 1963 novel was published with a glossary of the dystopian language used by Alex, the brutal teenage narrator. The quality of Tom Hollander's performance, however, renders such help unnecessary. Hollander's vocal suggestiveness, grasp of tone, and overall emotional resonance with the novel give listeners amazing clarity (especially if, like this reviewer, they've previously read the book relying on the glossary). You listen to Alex's adventures, amazed at the clarity Hollander gives to such a verbally ambitious work. This recording also includes the last chapter of the novel (not published in the first American edition), Burgess's later introduction to the book, and, from the Caedmon archives, Burgess himself reading excerpts. A rich, exceptional package. G.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2008 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
