<<Pelecanos' novel, "The Big Blowdown" has had a very strong effect on me. I am so impressed by the book that I would like someone to look at it seriously as a very important fictional account of the immigrant experience in the United States.>>

I agree. It made a big impression on me, too. Pelecanos is an ambitous writer in the best sense of the word. The Big Blowdown is a big canvas with a heart behind it. I would recommend it not just to mystery fans but to anyone looking for a stirring read.
