'Richard Price is the greatest writer of dialogue, living or dead, this country has ever produced. Wry, profane, hilarious and tragic, sometimes in a single line, Lush Life is his masterwork. I doubt anyone will write a novel this good for a long, long time' Dennis Lehane 'A gritty tale from a writer I really admire' James Patterson 'A visceral, heart-thumping portrait of New York City' New York Times 'Lush Life peels off the shiny top layer of New York to reveal the raw beating heart of the city post 9/11' Daily Mail
