Described by various reviewers as hellish and obscene, 'Last Exit to Brooklyn' tells the stories of New Yorkers who at every turn confront the worst excesses in human nature. Beat poet Allen Ginsberg commented on its release "Last Exit to Brooklyn will explode like a rusty hellish bombshell over America, and still be eagerly read in 100 years." It has since become a cult classic. Basis for a critically acclaimed film adaptation in 1989.
