"A devastating, dark, perfect novel" —Chicago Sun-Times

"There is enough of Harry White in our own vagrant daydreams and angry fantasies to attach us to Selby's grim story . . . Once again he confirms his amazing power of expressing human darkness" —Newsweek

Harry White is the man other men want to be: wealthy, talented, admired by his peers, and desired by countless women. His steady rise to a position of unprecedented influence in a New York investment firm seems inevitable to those who know him, and on the way up he acquires a beautiful wife and children. But with every achievement, the desire to destroy what is his grows stronger. A demon exists within Harry, and it drives him to sexual excess, petty crime, and eventually murder.

The Demon explores the dark side of a man's ambitions with unflinching determination. Harry White's story is a gripping twentieth-century tragedy.
