This is a true first edition / first printing, with the full numberline 10987654321 on the copyright page. A really nice copy of this powerful novel, about a man attempting to kill himself, by the cult American author of 'Last Exit to Brooklyn' and 'Requiem For a Dream'. Not price-clipped. Small bump to the bottom of the book. This is the scarce American edition. We protect all our books with a removable plastic cover, and send them with care. N° de ref. de la librería 000838

Acerca de


In this highly polished and slightly twisted moral tale, a man pulls back from the brink of suicide when his application to buy a gun with which to shoot himself is delayed. Instead of throwing his life away, he decides to spend all his time and effort disposing of those who he feels deserve to die. Targeting a bureaucrat in the Veterans’ Administration, he devises an ingenious method of murdering people without trace. With a renewed zest for living he embarks on a joyful killing spreeI>

Hubert Selby Jr. was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1928. After a career in the merchant marine cut short by illness, he achieved international recognition for his acclaimed cult classic, Last Exit to Brooklyn. Darren Aronofsky’s film adaptation of Selby’s Requiem for a Dream, starring Jared Leto and Ellen Burstyn was one of independent cinema’s biggest hits in 2001.
