Rich Boy Cries for Momma is set in Washington, DC during the turbulent 1970s and '80s. The story is told by an unnamed teenage narrator, the dyslexic son of two successful lawyers. Taunted, bullied and rejected by the “nice” children of the Washington elite, the teenage narrator is looking for a world that accepts him as he is. Outcasts, the teenager and his friends create their own world, without adults, that centers around punk rock music. In this underground subculture, filled with mayhem, teenage romance, violence and drugs, it is survival of the fittest. A disparate cast of characters – from junkies, gangsters and jocks, to the kids of diplomats, the girl next door and the boy who suffers from fecalphilia - become entangled in the “scene”.

Rich Boy Cries for Momma features ink and paper drawings that capture the essence of DC in the 1970s and '80s. The book also contains the lyrics of more than two dozen songs written and performed by the hard-core punk rock bands of that era.
