Sol Yurick's cult novel, originally published in 1966, blasts the American judicial system and society in general. It was called 'one of the fiercest and most effective satires to come out of America in a decade' by The Spectator. Although written before his debut published novel The Warriors (1965), like that work, Fertig was eventually made into a movie--The Confession (1999) starring Ben Kingsley.

The Warriors

The basis for the cult-classic film The Warriors chronicles one New York City gang's nocturnal journey through the seedy, dangerous subways and city streets of the 1960s. Every gang in the city meets on a sweltering July 4 night in a Bronx park for a peace rally. The Warriors follows the Dominators making their way back to their home territory without being killed.
