A viscerally affecting portrait of an incarcerated man who loses himself to dark fantasies of revenge


In The Room, Hubert Selby, Jr., imaginatively and convincingly explores the inconceivable depths of madness.


A small-time criminal sits alone in his cell, his mind radiating with sadistic thoughts of retribution against his captors and those who have failed him during his life. What follows is a deeply disturbing exploration into one of the darkest minds in American fiction—made all the more terrifying by the narrator’s flashes of humanity.


The Room is Selby’s second novel—a tale so frightening the author himself couldn’t read it for decades after writing it.


This ebook features an illustrated biography of Hubert Selby, Jr., including rare photos from the author’s estate.
