    Subject

    The fate of these characters is inevitably tragic. We wanted to show the generation of people just ahead of us, people who are now fifty or sixty years old. When I was eleven or twelve, I hung around those guys; they were the same age I am today, but now most of them are dead, some have vanished, and others are doing 30-year stretches in prison. Those are the people we wanted to show.

    In a housing project, there aren’t many possibilities: either you get out and manage to make something of your life, or else – for most people I know – you wind up in prison, dead of an overdose, or insane. Those are the kinds of characters we wanted to write about.
