David Henry is a screenwriter, and his brother Joe Henry is a songwriter/singer as well as a music producer. They first discovered Richard Pryor when they were young, becoming instant fans, and then later they were able to meet the man and to spend time with him. They set out initially to write a screenplay for a projected film; fortunately, they also wrote a biography. Furious Cool is their first book.

Joe Henry’s new album, Invisible Hour, is available now.
