Terry Malloy is a hoodlum, caught between the beginnings of a conscience and the racketeers for whom he works. Katie is that conscience. But she is torn between her love for him and her belief he killed her brother. Together with slum-reared Catholic priest Father Pete Barry, Terry and Katie take on the gangster-ridden waterfront unions of Johnnie Friendly. 

After writing the award-winning film of On The Waterfront, Budd Schulberg developed the story of Terry Malloy into a novel. An exceptionally talented and experienced reader, William Hootkins captures the mood of this stark, realistic, story of brutality, corruption, and tender love with great force and energy.

About the Author

Budd Schulberg wrote On the Waterfront, made into a movie starring Marlon Brando, and The Harder They Fall, made into a movie starring Humphrey Bogart. He won an Oscar for the screenplay of On the Waterfront, several awards for his film A Face in the Crowd, and a Tony nomination for his Broadway adaptation of The Disenchanted. He attributed his ability to adapt his own work to stage or screen to his upbringing in Hollywood, where his father ran a major motion-picture studio. He died in 2009 at the age of ninety-five.
