A Clockwork Orange.

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess. This is a second edition with a signed tipped in plate signed by the author.

A Clockwork Orange is the scarifying autobiographical confession of Alex, a juvenile delinquent of the unspecified but very distant future, who tells the tale of his own criminal excesses and his 're-education' in the peculiar slang of his generation. It takes the reader to understand this expressive language called 'nasdat'; after he falls into the world of Alex.

A horror comedy, a fable of good and evil. Make of it what you will but for the faint hearted it is not.

I have wanted to bind iconic this book for ages and now feel ready to tackle it.
