“Like a modern, urban Crime and Punishment, this brilliant book is an intimate study of the interior lives of everyone touched by a too-quick trigger. You will be haunted by Price's riveting portraits of all involved, from the disillusioned detective to the victim's family, as well as the New York neighborhood they share.”

"A" "National Bestseller"
"A "New York Times "Notable Book" "of the Year"

"Lush Life" is a tale of two Lower East Sides: one a high-priced bohemia, the other a home to hardship, it's residents pushed to the edges of their time-honored turf. When a cocky young hipster is shot to death by a street kid from the "other" lower east side, the crime ripples through every stratum of the city in this brilliant and kaleidiscopic portrait of the "new" New York.
