  • Selby's best book

    The TLS
  • A terrifying journey into the darkest corners of the psyche

  • Selby deploys street slang, common speech, argot and scatology to create a high poetic 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

  • '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
