About this title

Synopsis:

The Wanderers, a teenage gang in the Bronx of the early 1960s, are just trying to stay alive - and maybe have a little sex. But it's not going to be easy. They're facing murderous parents, unimpressed girls, an all-Chinese gang and a pack of mute Irish maniacs, apathetic teachers, and a ten-year-old cold-blooded killer. Against these odds, will the Wanderers get what they're after?

About the Author:

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. Price has become one of Hollywood's most successful screenwriters. Clockers was made into a film directed by Spike Lee and starring Harvey Keitel and John Turturro. Richard Price's most recent novel is Samaritan.
