So, what do you do? Whenever people asked him, Eric Cash used to have a dozen answers. Artist, actor, screenwriter. But now he's thirty-five years old and he's still living on the Lower East Side, still in the restaurant business, still serving the people he always wanted to be. What does Eric do? He manages. Not like Ike Marcus. Ike was young, good-looking, people liked him. Ask him what he did, he wouldn't say tending bar. He was going places--until two street kids stepped up to him and Eric on Eldridge Street one night and pulled a gun. At least, that's Eric's version. In Lush life, Richard Price tears the shiny veneer off the "new" New York to show us the hidden cracks, the underground networks of control and violence beneath the glamour.

While I'm a big fan of the Wire, I cannot say the same of this novel. The title Lush Life is an oxymoron and this novel ends unfinished. 0 of 10 stars.
