This book about The Wire

The Wire Re-Up

I was clearing out some books to give to the charity shop when I stumbled across this book about The Wire, which was published by The Guardian in 2009. It’s a compilation of essays, articles and interviews surrounding David Simon’s epic Baltimore-set drama about drugs, cops, crooked politicians and mad drunken dockers. It features an interview I did in 2008 with Michael K Williams, who played Omar in the show. Anyway, it’s a nice read for those of you who are fans of what used to be the most critically acclaimed show ever, until Breaking Bad came along. I still like it. But then I haven’t seen Breaking Bad. Sue me.
