For Crime Novelist Richard Price, Life Is 'Lush'

Crime novelist Richard Price explores the fragile and often fractious relationship between Manhattan's Lower East Side denizens in his most recent book, Lush Life.

The novel, which centers on the seemingly random shooting of a bartender, is Price's eighth. The author was also a screenwriter for Sea of Love, Ransom and The Color of Money, as well as for the HBO crime drama The Wire.

This interview originally aired March 5, 2008.
