  • By Judd Morse -

    Dystopian science fiction is great for gloomy spring days spent inside. Fun fact: For several decades, there were actually two versions of this book. The US version was Stanley Kubrick’s blueprint for his film. But, like the film, the US version didn’t include the final chapter in the strange times of Alex, his droogs, and the old ultraviolence. The final chapter was deemed too controversial for American audiences. It wasn’t until 20 years after its original publication that the lost 21st chapter was finally printed in American texts. I for one say it’s worth rereading just to get to that lost chapter and find out what really does become of the psychopaths in postmodern society.
