9780714530383: The Room

Secluded in his remand cell, a small-time criminal surrenders himself to sadistic fantasies of hatred and revenge. Selby's second novel is a claustrophobic descent into the tormented soul of a man trapped in a loveless society.

Review:

Selby's best book The TLS A terrifying journey into the darkest corners of the psyche Guardian Selby deploys street slang, common speech, argot and scatology to create a high poetic art...it seems to derive from the greatest American poetry--Whitman, Pound, Williams, and Olson The Nation One must be grateful to Selby for his fatal vision and strong, original talent Newsweek 'Selby's place is in the front rank of American novelists ... to understand his work is to understand the anguish of America.' New York Times Book Review It's absolutely horrific ... but just about the most powerful novel I've ever read The Times
