Episode 17 Hubert Selby, Jr. "Another Day, Another Dollar"

The first chapter of Hubert Selby, Jr's classic, Last Exit To Brooklyn is many things: it's profane, violent and contains a number of racial slurs.  But it's also a window into the gritty life on a Brooklyn street written by a man who had lived a horrible life and had come out the other side.  In a powerful reading, actor John Turturro (Do The Right Thing, Barton Fink, The Night Of) transports us to those mean, grim streets. Also in the episode, guest host Lorin Stein, Editor of The Paris Review, talks to novelist and screenplay writer Richard Price about what it was about Last Exit To Brooklyn and Selby as a person that made him a fan.
