Publisher's Summary

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 crowd of miscreants turns violent after a prominent gang leader is killed and chaos prevails over the attempt at order. The Warriors follows the Dominators trying to make their way back to their home territory without being killed. The police are prowling the city in search of anyone involved in the mayhem. 

An exhilarating novel that examines New York City teenagers left behind by society, who form identity and personal strength through their affiliation with their "family", The Warriors weaves together social commentary with ancient legends for a classic coming-of-age tale.

I enjoyed it as much as the movie

I knew it would not be like exactly like the movie, but I enjoyed it just as much. I came into it considering it a unique story, enjoyed parts that matched the movie, and then realized how much more interesting the parts that didn't match were.
