Richard Price's new novel is Lush Life about the repercussions of a shooting on the Lower East side. Price has also written for HBO's The Wire, which ends a five-year run on Sunday. Price's other best-selling novels include Clockers, about life in the inner city world of drug dealing (which was made into a film), Freedomland, which was inspired by the real-life incident in which a woman alleged a black man carjacked her and took her two children, and Samaritan, about a man who returns to the New Jersey town where he was raised and to teaching, and the bad consequences of his good intentions. Price was also a screenwriter for the notable films Sea of Love, Ransom, and The Color of Money.
