Requiem for a Dream book. Not sure why this song kept on popping in my head while reading this 1978 novel by Hubert Selby, Jr, Requiem for a Dream. It is an easy read and each character has its own voice. The appropriate emotion in each scene gets reflected on Selby's narration: it can get doped with the wrong spelling and narration; it can get lonely as you remember how many failed diets you tried and they all did not work; it can get orgasmic as Selby makes the lovers moan and moan endlessly and it can get very angry with the junkie.

Unlike "Last Exit to Brooklyn" which shows the lower class on hard streets or his most famous "Requiem for a Dream" which brings the reader into the world of junkies, this work focuses on the middle class and middle American aspirations gone wrong for all the "right" reasons. Never have I read anything that can truly twist my gut and make my sweat pour, make the blood pound in my temples and my fingers tremble like this book. Hubert Selby Jr is one of the masters of gritty, Beat-era stories peopled by the homeless, the poor, the desperate. Dismissed from the merchant marines for ill health at the age of 19, Selby decided to try writing.
