Description or summary of the book: The acclaimed novel that inspired the Darren Aronofsky film-the story of three friends whose pursuit of wealth ends in addiction and tragedy. 'To understand Selby's work is to understand the anguish of America' (New York Times Book Review). Over twenty years after its first publication in 1978, Requiem for a Dream makes it to the big screen in a major motion picture starring Ellen Burstyn, Jennifer Connelly, Marlon Wayans, Jared Leto, and Christopher McDonald. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the highly acclaimed director of Pi, the movie was released in November 2000. In this searing novel, two young hoods, Harry and Tyrone, and a girlfriend fantasize about scoring a pound of uncut heroin and getting rich. But their habit gets the better of them, consumes them and destroys their dreams.
