Re: RARA-AVIS: Pelecanos book tour

Date: 14 Mar 2002

It was a dark and stormy night in Denver, but Pelecanos made it to the Tattered Cover. Not a bad crowd, considering the weather. He gave some good answers to the typical questions (how do you plot your novels), and some classy answers to not so typical questions (has the DC crime rate really gone down [basically, no, it's gone up, and gave some reasons]; is it hard to gear up and promote and talk about a book that you finished writing more than a year ago [basically, yes]; with all kinds of books to choose from, why read crime fiction [it's writing that talks about things that won't be written about in literary fiction, Bonfire of the Vanities was nothing but lies, something about racism, etc.]) Next stop, Southern Cal.
