Required reading, just as The Wire is required watching. There is a lot of scholarly work on The Wire, a TV show that was not honored in its lifetime. It debuted in 2002 and ran 5 seasons, ending in 2008. This book is a well-written oral history of the series that roughly follows the season chronology interleaving HBO politics and financial struggles. As I read I kept thinking that HBO should rebroadcast The Wire now so we can see how little we have progressed.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for this book. Needless to say, if you are a fan of the television showThe Wire, you MUST read this book. Period. THe Wire is one of the greatest, some say THE greatest, television shows in history. I don't think anyone would argue with either selection. If you have not seen the show, I strongly advise you to do so before reading this book. Or better yet, read along while you watch each season. I wouldn't skip ahead in the book because you want to watch the stories and characters develop as you wade through each respective season; all of which have a different and specific focus and narrative. The book provides insight, behind the scenes type tales as well as a deconstruction of the characters and stories for each of the seasons.… (lisätietoja)

The Wire is one of my top five favorite shows of all time. I loved reading this book of interviews about the making of this show.
