REVIEW OF ALPHABET CITY BY DAVID CLIVE PRICE

 

After Peter’s aunt passes away, undoubtedly, from a goof up of pills on Peter’s part, he finds himself in a life altering moment. Peter’s life is not at all what he desires, he despises his wife Kit, despises school, he despises life itself.

Although his aunt is pronounced dead by natural causes, at the inquest it is suggested by the coroner that a certain amount of barbiturates may have contributed to the death of his aunt.  Guilt instantly fills Peter as he realizes it may have been his blunder that caused her untimely death. It is this that finally makes Peter realize he no longer wanted to live the life he was living.

He leaves his wife, who blames him for his aunt’s death and he travels to America, New York to be exact, with only a small amount of money, to start a new life.

Meeting Joe, a handsome, slim African man, Peter’s life begins to change. He realizes his misery was all based on his choice to believe that he was a heterosexual man, when actually he was not. After a few sexual interactions with men, Peter begins to find a contentment of happiness inside, but his eyes are only for Joe.

Joe befriends him and they have their occasional one night stand, because Joe has a partner and because of this Peter is left with only an affair, but he is fine with it, as long as he has Joe in his life that is all that matters.

This is my second book I have read by David Clive Price and I have to say he is so wonderful at crafting his characters. This book is so amazing, the story portrayed so realistic. 

 

My Rating: 5.0 out of 5.0

 About the Author:

 

David Clive Price has had a passion for Asia's peoples and cultures ever since he went to Japan in the 1980s and wrote a book about his travels throughout the country. This passion developed further in Hong Kong, where he struggled to make ends meet as a writer in the 1990s, wrote economic reports about Asian countries, and travelled all over the region researching features for international magazines. Finding himself on his pin ends with his Chinese spouse in a walk-up one-room apartment above a nightclub in Hong Kong, he resolved to join the corporate world and became Chief Speechwriter for Asia for one of the world's leading banks. It was 1995. Hong Kong was preparing to return to China. David spent the next few years writing speeches to be given all over Asia and the world. He also began publishing a series of books on South Korea, Hong Kong, China, India, and Buddhism in the daily life of Asia.


Freeing himself from corporate life, he set up his own consultancy advising Asian multinationals and Western companies with Asian operations on their strategic and intercultural communications. This experience, and the challenges he faced launching his own business, form the basis of his new book The Master Key to Asia: A 6-Step Guide to Unlocking New Markets and his innovative Master Key Series on the business cultures, etiquettes and customs of Asia's high-growth markets. 
He has written books on the ‘lost civilization’ of rural Italy, music and Catholic conspiracies in Elizabeth I’s England, Buddhism in the daily life of Asia, the secret world of China’s Forbidden City, the intricacies of corporate life in London and Hong Kong, off-the-beaten track Seoul and South Korea, and the underworld of 1980s New York.
