Read full description of the books:



Billy Graves, John Pavlicek, Jimmy Sheridan, Yasmeen Assaf-Doyle e Redman Brown sono i superstiti dei Wild Geese. Erano sette un tempo, ma due si sono persi per strada, il primo definitivamente dopo aver fumato per una vita tre pacchetti di sigarette al giorno, il secondo sperduto in qualche angolo dell’Arizona a godersi la meritata pensione.
Intorno alla metà degli anni Novanta erano la squadra di detective più affiatata dell’East Bronx. Si facevano valere in uno dei quartieri peggiori di New York perché si consideravano una famiglia, capace di includere tra le sue fila proprietari di cantine, bar, saloni da barbiere, qualche vecchio spacciatore di marjuana, qualche ristoratore con sala da gioco clandestina dove giocare a dadi e bere gratis. Poi non accettavano danaro, ed erano implacabili coi malviventi d’ogni risma. Una squadra magnifica, insomma, ma con un cruccio indelebile: non aver incastrato le loro personali «Balene bianche», i criminali che avevano commesso delitti efferati sotto i loro occhi e l’avevano fatta franca.
Dei cinque superstiti Billy Graves è il cucciolo del gruppo, quello ancora in servizio nella Squadra notturna del Dipartimento di polizia di New York, un manipolo di detective incaricato di sorvegliare di notte le aree più pericolose di Manhattan, da Washington Heights a Wall Street. Un incarico non proprio esaltante, ma passabile dopo anni trascorsi all’Unità per le identificazioni, in punizione per aver ferito accidentalmente un bambino ispanico di dieci anni nel Bronx.
Billy Graves e la sua squadra si recano un giorno alla Penn Station, chiamati per il ritrovamento di un cadavere. Nel sudicio porticato della stazione, una lunga scia di sangue li conduce al corpo inerte di un uomo sulla trentina, occhi azzurri spalancati e pieni di paura, le sopracciglia sottili e arcuate, la pelle bianco latte, i capelli corvini e i tratti femminei. Billy Graves riconosce subito nella vittima Jeffrey Bannion, la «Balena bianca» cui Pavlicek ha dato ininterrottamente e vanamente la caccia, l’efferato assassino di un dodicenne trovato sotto un materasso macchiato di sperma.
Quando anche nei giorni seguenti altre due «Balene bianche» vengono assassinate in circostanze misteriose, Billy capisce che c’è un’unica cosa da fare: riunire John Pavlicek, Jimmy Sheridan, Yasmeen Assaf-Doyle e Redman Brown, i Wild Geese al completo, e cercare di capire chi abbia deciso di farsi giustizia da solo.
Romanzo dal ritmo incalzante, che inchioda il lettore alla pagina con una suspense magistrale, Balene bianche segna il prepotente ritorno di Richard Price sulla scena letteraria internazionale.

A self-described "middle class Jewish kid," Price grew up in a housing project in the northeast Bronx. Today, he lives in New York City with his family.

Price graduated from the Bronx High School of Science in 1967 and obtained a BA from Cornell University and an MFA from Columbia. He also did graduate work at Stanford. He has taught writing at Columbia, Yale, and New York University. He was one of the first people interviewed on the NPR show Fresh Air when it began airing nationally in 1987. In 1999, he received the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature.

Price's novels explore late 20th century urban America in a gritty, realistic manner that has brought him considerable literary acclaim. Several of his novels are set in a fictional northern New Jersey city called Dempsy. In his review of Lush Life (2008), Walter Kirn compared Price to Raymond Chandler and Saul Bellow.

Price's first novel was The Wanderers (1974), a coming-of-age story set in the Bronx in 1962, written when Price was 24 years old. It was adapted into a movie in 1979, with a screenplay by Rose and Philip Kaufman and directed by the latter.
Clockers (1992) was nominated for the National Book Critics Circle Award. It has been praised for its humor, suspense, dialogue, and characterizations. In 1995, it was made into a movie directed by Spike Lee; Price and Lee shared writing credits for the screenplay.

Price has written numerous screenplays, of which the best known are The Color of Money (1986), for which he was nominated for an Oscar, Life Lessons (the Martin Scorsese segment of New York Stories) (1989), Sea of Love (1989), Mad Dog and Glory (1992), Ransom (1996), and Shaft (2000). He also wrote for the HBO series The Wire. Price was nominated for the Writers Guild of America Award award for Best Dramatic Series at the February 2009 ceremony for his work on the fifth season of The Wire. He is often cast in cameo roles in the films he writes.

Price also wrote and conceptualized the 15 minute film surrounding Michael Jackson's "Bad" video.
Additionally, he has published articles in the The New York Times, Esquire Magazine, The New Yorker, Village Voice, Rolling Stone, and others.
