The only American edition of the cult classic novel.
A vicious fifteen-year-old "droog" is the central character of this 1963 classic, whose stark terror was captured in Stanley Kubrick`s magnificent film of the same title. In Anthony Burgess`s nightmare vision of the future, where criminals take over after dark, the story is told by the central character, Alex, who talks in a brutal invented slang that brilliantly renders his and his friends` social pathology. A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil, and the meaning of human freedom. When the state undertakes to reform Alex-to "redeem" him-the novel asks, "At what cost?" This edition includes the controversial last chapter not published in the first edition and Burgess`s introduction "A Clockwork Orange Resucked."
