Richard Price, at home in Harlem

Price is tired of discussing the pen name. Before we sit down, he asks “how long is this going to take?” and says he has to be somewhere in forty-five minutes. An hour later, he’s showing me around his four storey Harlem townhouse, pointing out the ornate moulding, the his and hers copper sinks in the bedroom, the squat cast iron radiators and the latticed woodwork over the pocket doors.
