Annotation:
The first novel by crime-fiction master Richard Price, THE WANDERERS is a coming-of-age story set in the rough-and-tumble world of teenage gangs in the Bronx. Written when Price was only 24 (and made into a feature film), THE WANDERERS contains much of the exceptional quality of Price's later work (CLOCKERS, FREEDOMLAND, and his work for the HBO television show THE WIRE), notably a keen understanding of the social and psychological undercurrents of crime, illustrated through unerring detail and vivid dialogue.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"[This] is an outstanding work of art because Price never imposes himself on the reader. His dialogue is musically true and emotionally correct. He respects his art and his subject, and illuminates our daily world with insights that allow us--at times force us--to feel closer to other human beings whether we like and approve of them or not." - Hubert Selby 4/21/74

(unknown)
"Not since 'Last Exit to Brooklyn' has dialogue been so accurately reproduced in artistic format. A deeply moving account of confused and spiritually underpriviledged youth." - William Burroughs

(unknown)
"I haven't read a better fictional account of the dark side of the American dream for many years...." - John Fowles

(unknown)
"You have sent me the best present I've had in years....It is his sense of universality that convinces me Mr. Price is good goods." - Jerome Weidman

"[A] superbly written book about coming of age in a section of the Bronx....THE WANDERERS is an outstanding work of art because Mr. Price never imposes himself on the reader. His dialogue is musically true and emotionally correct. He respects his art and his subject, and illuminates our daily world with insights that allow us -- at times force us -- to feel closer to other human beings whether we like and approve of them or not." - Hubert Selby Jr 04/21/1974
