Last Exit to Brooklyn
Last Exit to Brooklyn
"Incredibly powerful book of stories set in Selby's native Brooklyn in the 50's.  This book will take the wind out of your lungs and leave you with the books images printed in your mind for ever!"
Crime and Punishment: With selected excerpts from the Notebooks for Crime and Punishment (Wordsworth Classics)

"Yes, this is undoubtedly a masterpiece and I've only just read it. (whilst in St Petersburg, where the book is set).  I should have read this years ago!"
1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four
1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four
"Probably the most frightening book ever written - especially so, considering how accurately Orwell predicted the Big Brother world in which we now live"
Catch-22
Catch-22
"Another book that I'd put off reading for years because I thought I wouldn't be interested in it's war theme.  Well, it's not really about war, it's about Yossarian and he's a legend!"
The Catcher in the Rye
The Catcher in the Rye
"Always powerful and real enough to bring your mood down for days even after countless reads!  But it brings you down in a kind of good way!"
Lord of the Flies

"Surely everyone's read this??  Impossible to put down!"
Animal Farm

The Demon: A Novel
The Demon: A Novel
"Every bit as powerful as Last Exit... this book is absolutely impossible to put down.  You're constantly going to be wondering what's going to happen next - even though you already know!"
Ask The Dust

"Bandini the anti-hero:  pitied as much as one longs to be him!"
Hunger
Hunger
"Possibly the original Ask The Dust.  John Fante loved this book and so do I!"
Pulp: A Novel
Pulp: A Novel
"This book is hilarious!  Classic Bukowski style but for once not autobiographical.  The words just flow like beer!"
On the Road
On the Road
"It's a fair critique that it's hard to like the central characters in this book.  But it's classic escapism.  One reads it and dreams of the open American road with not a care in the world!"
The Rum Diary (Bloomsbury Classic Reads)
The Rum Diary (Bloomsbury Classic Reads)
"Soon to be a Bruce Robinson directed movie starring Jonny Depp.  I hope it looks as I picture the scenes in this book!"
The Outsider (Penguin Modern Classics)

"Quite a short book this, once you start you'll easily find yourself reading it through in one sitting - and loving every minute of it!"
The Fuck-up
The Fuck-up
"If you like Catcher in Rye and similar style books you'll love this.  It's raw and brutal"
