Week 34: Chicken

Lynn Crosbie, 2018, 339 pp.

Of all the books I’ve read during this project, Lynn Crosbie’s Chicken is definitely the strangest. Vulgar and brash, it’s a lurid first-person exploration of a middle-aged actor’s life of booze, sex, and fame, yet, as you delve deeper, the novel emerges as a biting satire of fame and the immorality that goes with the picture. 409 more words

A Clockwork Orange 1971

In an England of the future, Alex (Malcolm McDowell) and his “Droogs” spend their nights getting high at the Korova Milkbar before embarking on “a little of the old ultraviolence,” while jauntily warbling “Singin’ in the Rain.” After he’s jailed for bludgeoning the Cat Lady to death, Alex submits to behavior modification technique to earn his freedom; he’s conditioned to abhor violence. 39 more words

Besides classical music (especially Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Sebastian Bach), Alex loves ultra-violence. He is only fifteen, but every evening he meets his three “droogs” (Pete, Georgie and Dim) to go out and terrorize anybody unfortunate enough to fall into their clutches on the streets. 506 more words
