Last Exit to Brooklyn
The first UK edition of Hubert Selby's classic
First UK edition, first printing. Hardback in dustwrapper. 20.5 × 13.5cm, 234pp
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.
The book is in very good condition, with clean pages and secure binding. The dustwrapper is creased and chipped to all edges but has not been price-clipped and is now within a protective sleeve.
Please note: Due to the recent price rise for final mile delivery from USPS, our postage rates to the US have had to rise. We apologise for this but have no choice.
