Terry Malloy is a hoodlum, caught between the beginnings of a conscience and the racketeers for whom he works. Katie is t hat conscience. But she is torn between her love for him and her belief he killed her brother. Together with a 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 Waterfron, 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.
