"Undeniably powerful, an enormously affecting and intensely human story." --The Washington Post Book World "A GUT-WRENCHING PIECE OF WORK. . . Carcaterra's graphic narrative grips like gunfire in a dark alley." --The Atlanta Journal & Constitution "In his controversial memoir SLEEPERS, Carcaterra remembers harrowing months in the Wilkinson Home for Boys and the elaborate vengeance he and his friends exacted against the guards. He tells it all in spare, stylish prose . . . [with] relentless momentum and sheer drama. . . . SLEEPERS is a thriller, to be sure, but it is equally a wistful hymn to another age." --The Washington Post Book World "A TERRIFYING ACCOUNT OF BRUTALITY AND RETRIBUTION, searing in its emotional truth, peopled with murderers, sadists, and thugs, but biblical in its passion and scope." --People "SLEEPERS is so many things: a Dickensian portrait of coming of age in Hell's Kitchen, a terrifying and heartbreaking account of the brutalization of youth, a shocking--and disturbingly satisfying--climax worthy of the finest suspense novel. A brilliant, troubling, important book." --Jonathan Kellerman "COMPELLING." --USA Today Based on the author's own experience, Sleepers is a relentlessly gripping, shockingly irresistible chronicle of four boys' lives on the gritty streets of Hell's Kitchen and in the hellish halls of a reformatory--where two of them would be turned to lives of crime and driven to violent revenge.
