Novels: Clockwork Orange

Clockwork Orange

Synopsis from Good Reads

In Anthony Burgess's influential nightmare vision of the future, criminals take over after dark. Teen gang leader Alex narrates in fantastically inventive slang that echoes the violent intensity of youth rebelling against society.

Dazzling and transgressive, A Clockwork Orange is a frightening fable about good and evil and the meaning of human freedom.
