Hubert Selby, Jr. (Part 1)
Listen to/Watch entire show:
This is the first of a two-part interview with the near-legend Hubert Selby, Jr. In this conversation, the author, now in his seventies, reviews and relives the tumult created by his debut novel, Last Exit to Brooklyn (Grove). He recalls the poets and artists he knew and influenced, the literary magazines he worked on, and the special aesthetic he evolved in order to write this nightmare novel of sex and lovelessness.
