Synopsis:

Bobby is young and black - still in high school but old beyond his years. His daddy upped and left years ago, and his mother can barely cope with life in the run-down corner of New York where they struggle to survive. The best thing in Bobby's life is Maria, a Hispanic girl from down the street. They love each other and have big plans for the summer that lies ahead of them, after school is out. They get jumped by a vicious Hispanic street gang in th4 South Bronx. With Bobby savagely beaten and Maria lying in hospital waiting for skin grafts to cover her badly burned face, The Willow Tree takes the reader on a volcanically powerful trip through the lives of America's dispossessed inner-city dwellers. Into this bleak and smouldering hinterland, however, comes a small but vital note of love and compassion as Bobby struggles angrily with his own sense of loss and his desperate need for revenge. In what is undoubtedly one of the most important publishing events in recent years, Marion Boyars Publishers are proud to announce the first new novel from Hubert Selby in over a decade. An outstandingly gifted voice in modern American literature, Selby has created in The Willow Tree a luminescent statement on the nature of human grace and the need for forgiveness.
