☯ Full Synopsis : "From the the acclaimed author of Last Exit to Brooklyn come these fifteen stories of love and despair, destiny and dumb luck, and the small tragedies and poignant victories of the unremarkable inhabitants of a heartless city Hubert Selby Jr. made an indelible mark on contemporary American literature with his masterful classic Last Exit to Brooklyn, a novel that brilliantly explored the lives of those at the lowest strata of urban society. But even before that novel altered the landscape of American fiction, Selby was honing his literary craft with short fiction that intensely illuminated the tragic human condition in a stark and unforgiving light. The unforgettable voices in Song of the Silent Snow range from streetwise to poetic, telling urban fables that are wise, poignant, funny, and heartbreaking. The stories collected here represent Selby at his very best, whether he’s exploring a married commuter’s fantasy love for a stranger he sees every morning on the subway or wryly spinning the tale of a salesman whose life is being dictated by Chinese fortune cookies. In these pages, a homeless man’s most meaningful relationship is with his coat, much more important to him than any human interaction; a desperate father resorts to violent destruction to get his son’s attention; and a young man’s successful attempt to impress a girl on their first date comes back to haunt him. Through the remarkable stories collected in Song of the Silent Snow, Selby carries readers into a hard and uncaring world to reveal the humanity that dwells there, even in its darkest corners. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby Jr. including rare photos from the author’s estate."Article| Hubert Selby| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Since the publication in 1964 of his novel LAST EXIT TO BROOKLYN, which quickly became a cult classic, Hubert Selby, Jr., has held a place as one of the foremost exponents of American underground literature. In this study, James Giles examines the controversial writer's four novels and one collection of short stories to make the case that Selby's writings represent an innovative merger of both "naturalistic" and "surrealistic" modes."Article| James Richard Giles| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "With a new Introduction by Irvine Welsh 'Last Exit to Brooklyn will explode like a rusty hellish bombshell over America, and still be eagerly read in 100 years' Allen Ginsberg Few novels have caused as much controversy as Hubert Selby Jr.'s notorious masterpiece. Described by various reviewers as hellish and obscene, it tells the stories of New Yorkers who at every turn confront the worst excesses in human nature. Yet there are moments of exquisite tenderness in these troubled lives. Georgette, the transvestite who falls in love with a callous hoodlum; Tralala, the conniving prostitute who plumbs the depths of sexual degradation; and Harry, the strike leader who hides his true desires behind a boorish masculinity, are unforgettable creations. Last Exit to Brooklyn was banned by British courts in 1967, a decision that was reversed the following year with the help of a number of writers including Anthony Burgess.

☯ Full Synopsis : "'It is quite an experience to be locked up all by yourself in any size room' says the anonymous narrator of Hubert Selby Jr.'s second novel. What follows is a startling series of recollections and fantasies that illuminate the workings of a prisoner's unhinged mind. He yearns for his violent childhood, rages against obscure authorities, and imagines enacting horrible revenge on those who imprisoned him. The prisoner's remand cell becomes the scene of a surreal mental torture.Disorienting, nightmarish and structurally inventive, The Room is a shocking examination of the suffering humans can inflict on each other."Article| Hubert Selby| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "“A slender but punch-packing overview of the environmental destruction of the Far North” from the award-winning environmental reporter (Kirkus Reviews). Traditionally thought of as the last great unspoiled territory on Earth, the Arctic is in reality home to some of the most severe contamination on the planet. Awarded a major grant by the Pew Charitable Trusts to study the Arctic’s deteriorating environment, Los Angeles Times environmental reporter Marla Cone traveled across the Far North, from Greenland to the Aleutian Islands, to find out why the Arctic has become so toxic. Silent Snow is not only a scientific journey, but a personal one with experiences that range from tracking endangered polar bears in Norway to hunting giant bowhead whales with native Alaskans struggling to protect their livelihood. Through it all, Cone reports with heartbreaking immediacy on the dangers of pollution to native peoples and ecosystems, how Arctic cultures are adapting to this pollution, and what solutions will prevent the crisis from getting worse."Article| Marla Cone| Statement ..."
