…is one of my favourite authors at the the moment, and there is a great feature on him over at the NPR website. I discovered Pelecanos through the HBO series ‘The Wire’ and have picked up a coupke of nis novels since. I don’t tend to read crime fiction, but I love his work for the depth of character and the amazing dialogue. Well worth a read for anyone interested in really well done contemporary noir.
