Author Info
Richard Price
Richard Price has been Ditman Professor of American Studies and a professor of anthropology and history at the College of William and Mary.
"There oughta be a law requiring Richard Price to publish more frequently. Because nobody does it better. Really. No time, no way." (starred review)
"With its perfect dialogue and attention to the smallest detail, Price's latest reminds readers of why he's one of the masters of American urban crime fiction." (starred review)
"No one writes better dialogue than Richard Price--not Elmore Leonard, not David Mamet, not even David Chase....In his latest novel, LUSH LIFE, Mr. Price puts his myriad gifts together to create his most powerful and galvanic work yet, a novel that showcases his sympathy and his street cred and all his skills as a novelist and screenwriter: his gritty-lyrical prose, his cinematic sense of pacing, his uncanny knowledge of the nooks and crannies of his characters' hearts."
"With novels such as CLOCKERS and now LUSH LIFE, Price has staked his claim as one of the finest realists of this or any age."
From the Publisher
Annotation Richard Price, author of CLOCKERS and FREEDOMTOWN and co-writer for HBO's THE WIRE, uses his unflinching eye for the realities of urban life to expose the hidden crimes and cruelties of New York City in the years after the city supposedly had risen above its seedy past. Eric Cash, a bartender whose dreams of becoming a writer have fallen to the wayside, is a witness when a new young bartender is shot and killed in a routine mugging. The murder becomes a media story, and brings into focus the maelstrom of conflicts--race, class, and culture--brewing in New York's Lower East Side, where housing projects and Chinatown come into conflict with the young white urban immigrants transforming the neighborhood in their own image. Selected as one of the 2008 Best Books of the Year by Publishers Weekly.
