    Anthony Burgess is one of the most prolific and popular novelists of the 20th century. Beautiful Books is delighted to announce the launch of The Anthony Burgess Collection, with the republication of three of Burgess’s novels which have fallen out of print and thus beyond the reach of a whole new generation of readers. As Roger Lewis points out in his three brilliant introductions to these novels, Burgess is an endlessly fascinating writer: mercurial, didactic, determined never to be trapped into any one art form or genre. The three novels here display that exciting breadth so well. Ingenious, chilling and darkly comic, 1985 combines a devastating critique of Orwell’s 1984 with a terrifying vision of the future. As memorable as A Clockwork Orange, it is as powerful and unsettling as anything Burgess has written. First published in 1978, its thoughts and ideas still hold very true today. AUTHOR: Anthony Burgess (1917-1993) was the author of a Earthly Powers, the Malayan Trilogy, A Clockwork Orange and many other much-loved novels. He was a truly multifaceted artist, producing novels, orchestral music, film scripts, criticism, poetry and translations. REVIEWS: “This constantly astonishing writer...has such great gifts and writes with so much wit and energy,” - Robertson Davies ‘A book as important as it is frightening.’ - Daily Telegraph ‘Truly excellent.’ - Auberon Waugh ‘Exciting, bleakly fascinating.’ - Financial Times
