A Clockwork Orange

Anthony Burgess
Illustrated by Ben Jones
Introduced by Irvine Welsh

Burgess's iconic novel, presented in a new edition introduced by Irvine Welsh.

Goodness is something chosen. When a man cannot choose he ceases to be a man.

So says the prison chaplain, perhaps the only voice of reason in Anthony Burgess's most celebrated work. Both a horrific satire of youth culture and an ingenious examination of social justice and government control, A Clockwork Orange has left an indelible, boot-shaped mark on the popular and literary culture of the late 20th century. Stanley Kubrick's notorious 1971 film — with its iconic imagery and enduring controversies — has overshadowed a work whose philosophical paradoxes and astonishing linguistic invention are some of literature's most inspired.
