BEAT to a PULP's Chad Eagleton has an in-depth essay on Anthony Burgess's A Clockwork Orange over at The Fall Creek Review. A thought-provoking piece on the relevance of this book and, honestly, if its actually any good.
I've always liked the Stanley Kubrick movie but can remember having a difficult time, myself, finishing the novel. Chad tackles this—comparing book vs. film—plus highlights Rat Pack by Shane Stevens which is how he initially came to read the Burgess classic.
Btw some recent greatness at The Fall Creek Review includes "The Lizard's Ardent Uniform" by Chris Holm and Ron Scheer's "My Dinner with Allen Ginsberg." TFCR sporadically updates but when they do you don't want to miss any posts. A good site to bookmark.
