really liked it
Read in April, 2009

There is nothing fancy or fussy about the prose in Lush Life. But Price paints an incomparable picture of a part of New York City where the wealthy, the wanna-be's, and the city's poor co-mingle. The conversations are extremely well written and Price's flawed characters feel like real people, not characters in a book.

I am really enjoying it--I wish I could just take a whole day to read the last 200 pages!
