Review:

'The most heralded work of fiction to come out of New York since Tom Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities While Wolfe's high-rollers only dipped a toe into the dark side, Price gives us all the raw detail of the street timely, majestic' Time Out 'Big, shocking, powerful resounds with vivid detail' Independent on Sunday 'Dazzling An odyssey of cops, drugs, survival and power A closely-observed tour de force' New York Daily News 'One hell of a book Price shows that he's got the best equipment a novelist can have - that combination of muscularity, insight and compassion' Washington Post

About the Author:

Richard Price spent four years with dealers and cops on the streets of urban America researching the raw material for Clockers. His first novel, The Wanderers, was a literary sensation when it was published in 1974. Three other novels followed - Bloodbrothers, Ladies' Man, and The Breaks, but more recently Price has become one of Hollywood's most successful screenwriters. The Color of Money - for which he received an Oscar Nomination - and Sea of Love are two of his credits. Clockers was directed by Spike Lee and starred Harvey Keitel and John Turturro.
