About this title

Synopsis:

The recent success of Clockers established Richard Price as one of America's most accomplished novelists. Now, with this collection of his three best-known screenplays, readers can see for themselves why movie critics consider Price an equally brilliant screenwriter.
Twelve years after his first novel, The Wanderers, created a literary sensation, Price made another dramatic debut, this time in Hollywood. The Color of Money (1986), starring Paul Newman and Tom Cruise, was a critical and commercial success, and Price's screenplay was nominated for an Academy Award. In 1989, his script for Sea of Love was a key reason why the movie, starring Al Pacino and Ellen Barkin, was one of the year's biggest hits. The fall of 1992 brought the release of Night and the City, starring Robert De Niro and Jessica Lange, and again Price's script attracted much praise. The New York Times wrote: "Mr. Price, in adapting the original material to his own dazzling contemporary style, has provided a great deal of the urban irony that works so well for him in his novels."
These terrifically readable screenplays display all the gifts that make Price's fiction so remarkable: his pitch-perfect dialogue, his eye for the detail that reveals an entire life, his generous understanding of the human heart. Introduced with a revealing interview of Price by the critic Neal Gabler, here is convincing proof that Richard Price is one of our most talented writers, no matter what the medium.

About the Author:

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.
