Droogs...open
your glazzies, clear your rasoodocks, and prepare yourselves for a
raskazz of prestoospnicks, drencroms, in and out, and a bit of krovvy
ultraviolence. Alex, a ruthless streeet thug, is arrested and chosen
to undergo a new and controversial form of rehabilitation. The
treatment seems to work, but he's left dangerously vulnerable and
stripped of the ability to choose his own path. This book tickles
some heavy subject matter in its 212 pages. Fans of the movie should
know that the novel contains an extra chapter that, for better or
worse, provides the story with a less ambiguous conclusion.

— Adam S

Description


A Clockwork Orange is as brilliant, transgressive, and influential as when it was published fifty years ago. A nightmare vision of the future told in its own fantastically inventive lexicon, it has since become a classic of modern literature and the basis for Stanley Kubrick's once-banned film, whose recent reissue has brought this revolutionary tale on modern civilization to an even wider audience. Andrew Biswell, PhD, director of the International Burgess Foundation, has taken a close look at the three varying published editions alongside the original typescript to recreate the novel as Anthony Burgess envisioned it. We publish this landmark edition with its original British cover and six of Burgess's own illustrations.
