Richard Price comes to Holt - under a different name

Clockers: A Novel was one of the best books I ever read. I'd hate to go back to it now. I wonder if it would enthrall me to the same degree.

Sarah Weinmann reports that Richard Price, now using a pseudonym, will write for Holt, which she wonders if this is the "publishing house is where literary writers go to exercise their genre chops." As a Holt writer [albeit on the YA side], I kind of take it as a compliment.

The move also puts back back with the editor of Clockers and Freedomland. I was not as big a fan of Lush Life. It was gorgeously written, but by the time I closed the book I couldn't remember who had done it, which seems kind of like a drawback for a book that's supposed to be built around a mystery.
