A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess

A novel of the near future by one of the most talented and imaginative writers of today


PAN BOOKS X 321
FIRST PRINTING 1964
LONDON, UK
ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN HARDBACK BY WILLIAM HEINEMANN 1962

'HORRORSHOW'

-that's the adjective which Alex, the delinquent teenage villain of the piece would use to describe A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.

You, we are sure, will find it one of the most unusual and unforgettable novels you have read. The extreme in wickedness, social satire, abundant racy humour-all are here in this story of London in the none-too-distant future, a city terrorized at night by prowling toughs, where the powers-that-ought-to-be struggle to buy peace and order through the skills of brainwashing psychiatrists!
