Lush Life, by Richard Price

Categorized in:

lush life, by richard powers

A virtuoso, beautiful book about cops, crime, history, urban development, and the ghost kicked up by the old becoming new. Pure pleasure on every page, from Price’s rhythms of daily life and delicious dialogue. I was surprised, though, at how much the Brooklyn funeral revived my distaste for the NYC hipster scene.
