A Clockwork Orange
The Restored EditionBook - 2012
Overview: A newly revised text for A Clockwork Orange's 50th anniversary brings the work closest to its author's intentions. A Clockwork Orange is as brilliant, transgressive, and influential as when it was published fifty years ago. A nightmare vision of the future told in its own fantastically inventive lexicon, it has since become a classic of modern literature and the basis for Stanley Kubrick's once-banned film, whose recent reissue has brought this revolutionary tale on modern civilization to an even wider audience. Andrew Biswell, PhD, director of the International Burgess Foundation, has taken a close look at the three varying published editions alongside the original typescript to recreate the novel as Anthony Burgess envisioned it.

If you loved the thought-provoking twisted plot from American Beauty, you will love A Clockwork Orange about the inhumanity of man to man through a futuristic culture where teenagers rule with violence.
