Hubert Selby Jr.

Steven Gettis has a wonderfull website full of drawings, done on his request, by dozens of fantastic artists. Among them are such legends as John Buscema, Will Eisner and Bill Sienkiewicz, to name just a few. The artists are asked to do their favourite literary figure/author/character and I've picked Hubert Selby Jr. His "Last exit to Brooklyn" has been one of my favourite books since I've read it almost twenty years ago. I never knew much about him, and picking him for Steven's gallery inspired me to do some research and discover an amazing person! So, thanks, Steven for that and for inviting me to be part of your unique gallery!
