I mean, technically Sunset Park in Brooklyn is like ten minutes away on foot, but Brooklyn's come a long way in forty years and I don't know anyone like anyone in this book, which is great for me because there is an awful lot of rape going on.

And the thing is that Selby is such a terrific observer of people, and he has this wonderful sympathy for them, so he gets you inside even the most loathsome of characters - and everyone here is basically loathsome, so when I say "most" I mean MOST - and you understand a little of why they're like this, the loneliness and hopelessness and hurt fury inside them.
For all I know that worked; maybe this wouldn't be a cult classic if it wasn't notorious for its groundbreaking obscenity trial. I'm just saying, he's a really good writer and this book gets a little dark sometimes. It isn't a novel, it's a collection of loosely linked short stories.

Tralala 's story is the famous one, partly because obscenity and partly because I think the movie focused on it. But the best, and the longest, is Strike, about a crooked union rep for a crooked union striking against a crooked factory while looking for crooked love from crooked people. The ending makes no sense - did I mention rape?
The only really weak story is Landsend, the final one, which is too sketchy to amount to anything and besides Selby's point is more than made by then and it starts to feel repetitive. Up 'til then, the stories actually build on each other very nicely and then everybody got raped. This book is brutal, but fantastic!! There are no likeable characters here, but you can't help but feel sorry for the desperate situations they are in at times. A portrayal of the nastiest, lowest forms of character amongst us.

A much cruder version of the human conditions that Emile Zola wrote about almost a century previous to this. I'm wondering why I've not read this before now.

I grew up in Brooklyn, and I live here now- so people are sometimes impressed by the length of my tenure and my selection of "back in the early s" stories.
At least until they realize that I'm from Park Slope, which is like being from the Upper West Side of Manhattan- sure, it probably had its rough spots, but no one is ever going to give you credit for surviving the rough streets of Riverside Drive.
