Set in Washington, D.C. during the turbulent 1980s, Rich Boy Cries for Momma is a coming of age novel told from the perspective of the good son turned teenage punk rocker. While the “nice” kids of the Washington elite bully and reject him because of his dyslexia, the punk rock scene accepts him as he is. This fast-paced novel pulls us into the protagonist’s dangerous and erratic new world, filled with violence and drugs, while remaining funny and heartwarming. A disparate cast of characters—the rich, powerful, and successful, to the beaten, broken, and besmirched—become entangled in the punk rock subculture. We follow alongside our somewhere-in-between narrator as he wades through his learning disability, and navigates relationships that sometimes betray his perceptions, sometimes break his heart, and sometimes save his life.
Rich Boy Cries for Momma features ink and paper drawings that capture the essence of D.C. during the 1980s. The book also contains the lyrics of more than two dozen songs of the hard-core punk rock bands of that era.
