John Sayles' novel Union Dues and Richard Price's latest Lush Life both feature charcters of wildly different backgrounds, positions and beliefs in an urban enviornment and (among other things) shows how connected they are whether they know it (or are even aware of eachother's existence) or not. They also portray all the characters (even the one's who beliefs they obviously disagree strongly with) as fully-fleshed human beings rather than walking points-of-view. They also both have a great ear for idiom and dialect. I'm looking for more bookslike this. Any suggestions.
