it was amazing

I am a huge fan of Richard Price. One of the most compelling things I find about him is this complete sea change he made in his writing between The Breaks (1983) and Clockers (1992). Pre-Clockers his books were these fairly light, but always hilarious (Ladies Man is certainly one of the funniest books I've ever read) stories about working class guys struggling w their various foibles. Then he writes Clockers, this epic crime novel so realistic it reads like journalism, without any of the goofiness and humor of his previous works. Completely different voice. Anyway, the man excels at both.
