Boston, Houghton Mifflin, 1976. The uncorrected proof copy of the second book by the author of The Wanderers and Clockers. Like those books, this was the basis for a major Hollywood movie. Price has written a number of well-received screenplays himself, including The Color of Money and Sea of Love, and worked on the highly praised HBO series The Wire -- which are all characterized by a facility with dialogue that is also evident in his novels; the books also exhibit a sense of humor and compassion that is remarkable, particularly given their gritty, urban settings. Inscribed by the author. Fine in wrappers. [#028012] $225
