Richard Price is the author of seven novels, including Clockers, Freedomland, and Lush Life.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
