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.
