Some brief overview of book

In Drama City, George Pelecanos returns to contemporary Washington DC for his most powerful crime novel yet Lorenzo Brown is fresh out of the clink. The former drug enforcer has vowed to go straight and found himself a job as an officer for the Humane Society. He patrols downtown DC looking for ill-treated pets - but in the course of his day repeatedly comes face-to-face with his old life.

Rachel Lopez is an attractive young probation officer. Brown is one of her clients but also fast becominD. C. as effectively as George Pelecanos, the award-winning author of two acclaimed detective series and several standalone noirs of exceptional quality.

Pelecanos debuted in 1992, with A Firing Offense, a fast-paced crime novel that introduced Nick Stefanos, a Greek-American advertising executive for an electronics chain who is reluctantly drawn into investigative work when a stock boy at his company goes missing. By books end, Nick has lost his job and applied for his P. I. license, paving the way for further (mis)adventures.

Neverthless, the series has proved anything but predictable. Some books move forward in time to reveal Nicks sad descent into alcoholism; others flash back to investigate his familys pastwith Nick relegated to cameo appearances in stories that span several generations and feature a cast of interrelated characters. Beloved by readers and critics alike, the Stefanos books cast unsparing light on a city tragically mired in crime, poverty, and racism.

In his Derek Strange and Terry Quinn series, Pelecanos delves further into the racial and cultural divide between white and black. Beginning with 2001s Right as Rain, these novels feature a salt and pepper team of ex-cops turned detectives who forge an uneasy friendship as they investigate cases in the blighted heart of D. C.

The very model of noir, the stories are steeped in the violence, brutality, and despair of urban life, but the dynamic between the tough but sensitive Strange and his younger, more volatile partner offers a hopeful and humanizing counterbalance. A distinguishing characteristic of Pelecanoss writing is an inclusion of musical references to create atmosphere, anchor period settings, and develop his characters personalities. (His 2004 novel Hard Revolution, a prequel to the StrangeQuinn books, was packaged in limited quantity with a CD of 70s soul music.) Pelecanos has also published mysteries and thrillers, short fiction, reviews and essays, and screenplays for film and televisionmost notably HBOs superb urban procedural The Wire.

Good To Know In our interview, Pelecanos shared some interesting anecdotes about past gigs I began to work at my fathers lunch counter in downtown D. C. when I was 11 years old, the summer after the riots of April 1968. It was the single most influential experience of my life.

Everything Ive written about since has seeds in that summer. Another good job I had was selling womens shoes, for obvious reasons. Writing for a living isnt bad, either.

It beats digging ditches or washing dishes. I know, because Ive done those things, too.
