A Clockwork Orange

I recently checked out a copy of the 1963 novelette by Anthony Burgess from the Flagstaff Public Library. I knew nothing about the story. I had been advised by friends NOT to see the Stanley Kubrick movie because of a disturbing rape scene. I had been advised by one proofreader of my book-in-progress that I should read the book, because it is a study on invented language and my book is about the slang of river runners. So I brought home this short book.
