Inspired by Hubert Selby's Last Exit To Brooklyn, The Wanderers stands on its own as another example of a painful and limited class struggle. Great dialogue and memories for us who had to be tougher than we really were as we grew up in the Cold War. It could be read in one sitting. But don't.

The book was written as though you were a part of The Wanderers. I would recommend this book highly.
