Richard Price: From Novel to Screen
Famous for his gritty and realistic exploration of urban life in America, Price's work attracts comparisons to Saul Bellow, Tom Wolfe and David Mamet, and his recently published novel, Lush Life, has been widely praised for its realistic dialogue, sharp and witty observations and keen eye for social detail. Price joined us last October for a frank and hilarious talk about his amazing career writing for the movies. He also gave lots of valuable advice and moral support to the aspiring writers in the audience. Price's screenwriting credits include: The Color of Money, Sea of Love, Clockers, Mad Dog and Glory, Ransom, Shaft and HBO's The Wire.
