Song of the Silent Snow

Hubert Selby Jr.


Hubert Selby is maybe one of many six most sensible novelists writing within the English language.?Financial Times

Author of debatable cult vintage, Last go out to Brooklyn, Hubert Selby started as a author of brief fiction. He excels during this shape, plunging the reader head-first into the densely learned worlds of his protagonists, within which the main points of way of life rub shoulders with obsession and madness.

Although essentially focused on morality, Selby's personal feel of humility prevents him from preaching. He deals in its place a passionate empathy with the standard desires and aspirations of his characters, a super ear for the city vernacular and for the voices of sense of right and wrong and self-deceit that torment his characters.

"A significant American writer of a stature with William Burroughs and Joseph Heller."?Los Angeles Times
