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
Sinopsis: Driven to desperation by the hand the world has dealt him, the suicidal narrator of Waiting Period attempts to buy a gun to end his life. But a computer malfunction causes a delay with the gun license: a life-saving event that sees the man questioning why he should die when there are so many others he believes should go before him. Planning the perfect murder, he chooses a victim - a bureaucrat responsible for denying him his benefits - and discovers to his amazement that his plan works perfectly. But now this man has found his purpose in life, how far will he go with his mission? In his final novel, Hubert Selby Jr. offers a shocking and fascinating examination of morality, murder and one man's personal war.
When Selby decides to attack, it is with the shock of a practised mugger and with the speed and economy of a poet ( The Los Angeles Times )
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 )
