Item Description: Büchergilde Gutenberg (Lizenz des Rowohlt Verlags), Frankfurt am Main, Olten, Wien, 1983. Leinen. Book Condition: gut. Erste Aufl./ Lizenzausgabe. Fadengehefteter kaschierter Ganzleineneinband mit geprägtem Rückentitel, fotografisch gestalteten Vorsätzen und fotografisch gestaltetem Schutzumschlag. Der Umschlag nachgedunkelt, leicht randberieben und mit einem hinterlegten kleinen Randeinriss, Schnitte und Papier leicht nachgedunkelt, ansonsten guter Erhaltungszustand. "»LAST EXIT TO BROOKLYN« - Wo am New Yorker Highway diese Schilder stehen, beginnt die Abfahrt auf die menschliche Müllkippe der Riesenstadt. In die Slums. Und Selbys Buch ist Brooklyn, ein Schock, eine Höllenvision der sozialen Verwahrlosung, hart, eine erbarmungslose Beschreibung der offenen Wunden Amerikas: Perversion, Brutalität und Macht. Die Slums von Brooklyn. Da ist der verachtete und gequälte Transvestit, der hinter seiner lächerlichen Fassade von Schminke und armseliger Koketterie die Sehnsucht und den Hunger nach ein wenig Freundlichkeit nicht verstecken kann. Da muß das kleine Straßenmädchen, das jedem guten Wort mißtraut, zerstört und vergewaltigt dafür büßen, daß in seiner grauen Welt allein das Geschäft mit der Triebhaftigkeit gilt. Da ist der Gewerkschaftsfunktionär, ein dümmlicher Popanz, dessen primitiver Machthunger den Streik provoziert, ›>seinen<< Streik, und dessen dumpfe, perverse Lust an der Demütigung zur Falle für ihn selbst wird. Die Slums von Brooklyn. Wenn dort, »wo die Welt zu Ende ist« - in den vernachlässigten Sozial-Wohnblöcken, schäbigen Bars und Cafeterias - Liebe, Alltag und Hoffnungslosigkeit zu rohen Vergnügungen und Aggressionen entarten, dann wird auch die Anklage unüberhörbar. Die Schläger und Mörder, die Homosexuellen, Zuhälter und Groschenhuren sind hier nicht die Helden, sondern die Gezeichneten einer Gesellschaft, die ihrer selbst überdrüssig geworden ist, die nur noch gefährliche Drogenräusche kennt statt der Träume, Gift statt Zuversicht und deren Begehren nicht Liebe meint, sondern rohen Sex. »Diese sechs Prosastücke müssen schockieren<<, schrieb die Kritik in den USA, »nicht wegen dieses oder jenes Wortes, sondern weil ein hervorragender Schriftsteller uns etwas zeigt, das wir gerne ignorieren würden.« Der Vorwurf hemmungsloser Obszönität und rüder Pornographie gegen den Autor, der in Brooklyn aufwuchs, stellte sich im berühmten Londoner Prozeß als unhaltbar heraus, Weil man beschämt zugeben mußte, daß es nicht genügt, erschütternde Tatsachen mit Deklamationen moralischer Entrüstung abzutun. Samuel Beckett sprach es aus: »Ohne Einschränkung ist das Buch ein tiefernstes und mutiges Kunstwerk«" (Verlagstext) In deutscher Sprache. 326 pages. Klein 8° (125 x 180mm).

Item Description: Penguin UK Okt 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. Neuware - Few novels have caused as much debate as Hubert Selby Jr.'s notorious masterpiece, Last Exit to Brooklyn, and this Penguin Modern Classics edition includes an introduction by Irvine Welsh, author of Trainspotting. Described by various reviewers as hellish and obscene, Last Exit to Brooklyn tells the stories of New Yorkers who at every turn confront the worst excesses in human nature. Yet there are moments of exquisite tenderness in these troubled lives. Georgette, the transvestite who falls in love with a callous hoodlum; Tralala, the conniving prostitute who plumbs the depths of sexual degradation; and Harry, the strike leader who hides his true desires behind a boorish masculinity, are unforgettable creations. Last Exit to Brooklyn was banned by British courts in 1967, a decision that was reversed the following year with the help of a number of writers and critics including Anthony Burgess and Frank Kermode. Hubert Selby, Jr. (1928-2004) was born in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 15, he dropped out of school and went to sea with the merchant marines. While at sea he was diagnosed with lung disease. With no other way to make a living, he decided to try writing: 'I knew the alphabet. Maybe I could be a writer.' In 1964 he completed his first book, Last Exit to Brooklyn , which has since become a cult classic. In 1966, it was the subject of an obscenity trial in the UK. His other books include The Room , The Demon , Requiem for a Dream , The Willow Tree and Waiting Period . In 2000, Requiem for a Dream was adapted into a film starring Jared Leto and Ellen Burstyn, and directed by Darren Aronofsky. If you enjoyed Last Exit to Brooklyn , you might like Larry McMurty's The Last Picture Show , also available in Penguin Modern Classics.
