Clockers by Richard Price

Power’s epic tale of drug dealing and policing in late 80s/early 90s New Jersey is hilarious, heart-rending, frightening, and revelatory. A subtle, affecting psychological take on the toll poverty takes on people. The things Powers learned here are echoed — sometimes down to the word — in his writing for The Wire.
