Description

"A terrifying journey into the darkest corners of the psyche" by the author of Requiem for a Dream and Last Exit to Brooklyn (The Guardian).

A small-time criminal sits alone in his cell, his mind reeling with sadistic thoughts of retribution against the police and, eventually, all those he believes have failed him throughout his life. A deeply disturbing exploration of a character the Guardian described as "a genuinely frightening American Psycho," Hubert Selby Jr.'s second novel is made all the more chilling by the narrator's brief flashes of humanity.

The Room is a tale so terrifying the author himself couldn't read it for decades after writing it. Called "brutal" by the New York Times when it was first published, it is a dark masterpiece about a man who may be temporarily trapped in jail, but whose true prison is his own anger, as he is enslaved by out-of-control passions and sickening fantasies of revenge.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author's estate.
