Richard Price is professor of anthropology at William and Mary College and author of several books, including the award-winning Alabi's World. He has lived intermittently in Martinique for more than twenty years.Review:
"Exuberant, vigorous, tough . . . dramatizes so well the awful power of family."--The Atlantic Monthly
"Richard Price is the greatest writer of dialogue, living or dead, this country has ever produced."--Dennis Lehane
"For all of its surface violence, blunt language and brute realism, Bloodbrothers is a most subtle book. A sharp portrait of coming-of-age, in sorrow and in strength."--The Washington Post Book World
"Cannot be forgotten by anyone who reads it, and it is not to be missed."--Chicago Tribune
"The action is so psychologically 'true' that reading about these Co-op City brawlers is like being only an uppercut away from them."--The New York Times
"Few contemporary writers have a clearer eye than Price or so effortlessly capture the nuances of speech and movement peculiar to urban man."--Chicago Sun-Times
