Hubert Selby Jr. The more Harry succeeds - a good marriage, a good corporate job - the more desperate he becomes, as a life of petty crime leads to fraud and murder and, eventually, to apocalyptic violence. Author of the controversial cult classic, Last Exit to Brooklyn, Hubert Selby began as a writer of short fiction. was born in Brooklyn New York in 1928. The Room is no fast paced page turner, this book isn't for those seeking instant literary gratification. After a career in the merchant marine cut short short by illness, he achieved interntational recognition for Last Exit To Brooklyn. His other novels include The Demon in 1976, The Willow Tree in 1998 and a collection of stories Song of the Silent Snow in 1986, all published by Marion Boyars. Both the pace and Selby's style of little punctuation and long thick paragraphs can make for a tedious read at times but, in my opinion this book is worth sticking with.
The Room is the second novel by Hubert Selby J. first published in 1971. The novel centers on a nameless petty criminal locked in a remand cell, and explores his feelings of impotence, hatred and rage, and fantasies of revenge.
