American novelist and screenwriter Richard Price has been describing the urban struggles, victories and defeats for four decades. His 1992 novel, Clockers, short-listed for the Nation Book Critics Circle Award that year, was made into a film for which Price co-wrote the screenplay with director Spike Lee. Price captures that moment of indecision in his screen writing, to great critical acclaim in his work on the HBO series The Wire, a show steeped in the street-level stories of cops, politicians, schools and drug economy. He also wrote the screenplay for the film Sea of Love, starring Al Pacino and based on Price's novel of the same name. For his script for The Color of Money, Price was nominated for an Academy Award for best original screenplay. Price's work has appeared in The New Yorker, Rolling Stone, Playboy and Esquire.
