Review: Lush Life

Avis de journaliste - Bookreporter.com - Max Falkowitz

There's something Dostoevskian about Richard Price's writing for his way of ensnaring a whole atmosphere and richly turning it into an authentic aesthetic environment.

This is undoubtedly a brilliant book, and Price is an excellent author.But it's too much realism for me when I can't really make myself care about the characters. So I stopped listening to it about 4 chapters into the book. Consulter l'avis complet
