Description
Dodgers is a dark, unforgettable coming-of-age journey that recalls the very best of Richard Price, Denis Johnson, and J.D. Salinger. It is the story of a young LA gang member named East, who is sent by his uncle along with some other teenage boys--including East's hothead younger brother--to kill a key witness hiding out in Wisconsin. The journey takes East out of a city he's never left and into an America that is entirely alien to him, ultimately forcing him to grapple with his place in the world and decide what kind of man he wants to become. Written in stark and unforgettable prose and featuring an array of surprising and memorable characters rendered with empathy and wit, Dodgers heralds the arrival of a major new voice in American fiction.

display_description "East is only fifteen, but he's already a seasoned gang member, hardened and savvy from a youth spent on the streets of South Central Los Angeles. So when the cops bust a stash house and arrest his uncle, East feels ready to step up and do a man's job -- even if it means finding and killing a key witness." -- From dust jacket.
