About this Item: Grove Press, New York, 1964. Hardcover. Condition: Near fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near fine. First edition. The novel describes the seedy underbelly of the Red Hook waterfront neighborhood in the Brooklyn of the 1950's, which is depicted as a wasteland prowled by gangs, whores and transvestites. When it was published by Grove Press in 1964, its repulsive language and blast-furnace images made the novel difficult either to accept or reject. The book was the subject of an obscenity trial in the United Kingdom, where prosecutors sought to determine whether it might deprave and corrupt its readers. Selby s power is in his ability to stay with the grotesque aspects of these wretched lives, but not once suggest that they are not capable of love, or worthy of it. Over fifty years on, it seems a more vital work than ever. In days of such human cruelty and pettiness and stupidity, we need reminding that we are all capable of savage compassion as well as the contagion of hatred. In 1989 'Last Exit' was made into a film by the German director Uli Edel. At the time of his death in 2004, Mr. Selby, a high school dropout, taught a graduate writing class at the University of Southern California. Near fine with minor edge-wear. First edition, fifth printing, inscribed by the author to Norman. signed by author. book. Seller Inventory # 274778

About this Item: The Grove Press, New York, 1964. First edition of Selby's first book. Octavo, original half cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half-title page, "To Glenn With All Best Wishes H. Selby Jr 6/22/91." Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Cover design by Roy Kuhlman. An exceptional example. Hubert Selby's fiercely controversial first novel, Last Exit to Brooklyn, shocked many at the time with its stark view of a Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood in the 1950s, yet won select critical regard for its "authentic power. Despite its bleakness, the book's underlying message of redemption through self-destruction caught on in a United States about to enter the radical 1960s. His prose was all Red Hook, spare, direct, as subtle as a punch in the gut from a heavyweight boxer." Selby, long weakened by years of illness and drug use, nevertheless lived to finally see his novel reach the screen. Directed by Uli Edel and starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, the 1990 film was hailed as an "uncommonly evocative screen adaptation of Hubert Selby Jr.'s teeming novel. an epic of the dispossessed" (New York Times).
