The Willow Tree

Author: Hubert Selby
Series: HS
$22.95(AUD)  inc GST

Bobby - young, black and happily in love with Hispanic girlfriend Maria - lives in a cramped Bronx apartment with his mother, his younger siblings and walls full of rats. But when Bobby and Maria are brutally attacked by a Hispanic gang, leaving the couple severely injured, everything changes. Maria may be lost, but, under the unusual care of the reclusive doctor he knows only as Moishe, Bobby might just have stumbled into a hopeful future of which he could never have previously dreamed. "The Willow Tree" is a searing trip of despair and hope through the lives of America's dispossessed inner-city residents.

Selby's work has the power, the intimacy with suffering and morality, the honesty and moral urgency of Dostoevsky's The New York Times Book Review
