Lush Life: A Novel by Richard Price
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Another of the top ten as designated by Entertainment Weekly, Richard Price writes about real people and gritty situations. I wasn't surprised to find he wrote for the television series "The Wire".
I had trouble adjusting to the realistic street language and found the characters disturbing in their flawed portrayals.
This is a disturbing story and left me feeling sad. It is well written, plotted, and the characters seems real. I just didn't like spending time with them very much.
