I never had much interest in Burgess. He just seemed like a pop fiction writer. & popularity is anathema to everything I stand on one leg for when a fierce wind is blowing. Of course I'd seen the Kubrick film & liked it. When I finally read this I thought it was better than I expected - esp when I realized that it's a parody of adolescence! Something that had completely escaped me before. Anyway, I went on a Burgess spree & liked them all. He's in my top 200 writers - wch I don't mean sarcastically - that's actually pretty good!
