“The trouble with America is that there too many women to fall in love with.”
From the Norton archives: John Burgess—you may know him better as Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange—writes to his Norton editor Eric Swenson about his (Burgess’s) trip to America. Also included: a nice little self-portrait of the author as a typing man.
A Clockwork Orange turns 50 this year—and we’ve got a new edition to celebrate.
