You know a book is off-the-charts disturbing when its own author can't stomach reading it.
This happened to Hubert Selby, Jr., who refused to read his New York Times-reviewed book The Room after it was published in 1971. He finally picked up a copy decades later, but the book remains incredibly dark and twisted, as it follows the mind of a depraved criminal, who has been locked up in prison.
His mind is a prison in and of itself, as he contemplates his crimes and circles around debased revenge fantasies that would sicken even the most calloused horror reader.
