Anthony Burgess' notorious dystopian novel. Adapted for the big screen by Stanley Kubrick, the film was more controversial than the book. This was perhaps, in part due to the change of ending, although certainly largely due to the scenes of violence. Kubrick withdrew the film from UK audiences himself, the self-imposed ban not being lifted until his death in 1999.
A very good copy, with a small chip to the head of the dust jacket spine, and some rubbing to extremities. With some archival tape repairs only visible on the reverse of the dust jacket.
