  2. Lush Life by Richard Price I read right after the BPP interview and the book is very good. And after hearing Gillbert King on News and Notes I started reading a few pages of The Execution of Willie Francis at Barnes and Noble and had to buy it. It’s so good. I don’t know if I’ll read John Adams. The mini series on HBO is not really doing it for me.
