Description:
Schulberg's acclaimed and bestselling novel, based on a classic of American cinemaIn 1955, Budd Schulberg adapted his Academy Award–winning screenplay into an exhilarating novel. Suspenseful and emotional, the novel presents a more complex—and perhaps bleaker—portrait of ex-boxer Terry Malloy's corrupt and stunted world on the docks of Hoboken. Narrated by Father Pete Barry, the novel shifts focus to the courageous priest who stands up to the Mob, as well as his own church, in order to redeem the souls of his hardscrabble and unloved constituents.On the Waterfront is a potent retelling of an iconic American story that stands apart as an unforgettable vision of crime, politics, and class in the twentieth century.This ebook features an illustrated biography of Budd Schulberg including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
