Book Description


See all titles by Lorenzo Carcaterra.

Lorenzo Carcaterra's stark and brutally honest writing has brought his readers deep into the Hell's Kitchen section of New York City, where he grew up and perhaps, to a great extent, where his demons still lie, flushed out through graphically cathartic writing. Carcaterra is the author of the autobiographical A Safe Place and the phenomenal bestseller Sleepers, the publishing event of 1995 and the catalyst for one of the top Hollywood films of the following year. Carcaterra returns with Apaches, his eagerly anticipated first novel and his darkest book yet in its vivid descriptions of the violence that humans inflict upon one another. Apaches returns to the mean streets of New York City in the early 1980s. A lethal new form of smokable cocaine, nicknamed "crack" for its wicked high, has made its appearance in dealers' vials on any and every street corner. The results are devastating. Violence is escalating as fast as morals can crumble "feeding the high" leads people on both sides of the drug trade to desperate, unspeakable measures to ensure the circulation of the drug.
