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 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 one night and pulled a gun. At least, that's Eric's version.

The book is in great shape and well worth the money but it reads like a movie script rather than a book, if that makes any sense. A bit disappointing, hard to get with the characters.

In Lush Life, Richard Price uses the police procedural to describe the clash between the old and the new Lower East Side, the immigrant communities and the gentrification of those same communities into restaurants, bars, boutiques and prime real estate, between the projects and the strivers, between ...
The street slang used in the early pages of this book was almost enough to make me put the book down. I did not understand it and I didn?t want to start a book focused on crime and violence.
