RARA-AVIS: Pelecanos and music

From: William Denton ( buff@pobox.com)

There was a mention on the fictionmags list of George Pelecanos's taste in music being covered in WASHINGTON CITY PAPER. The article is here, and free for four weeks (watch for line wrap in this ugly URL):


| Pelecanos' appreciation for music is almost as well-known as his novels,
| which chronicle a Washington far from filibusters and presidential
| coronations. The "tour music" section of his Web site offers a playlist
| much like that in Lost in the Grooves: When he hits the road to promote
| his new book, Drama City, in March, his CD wallet will be stocked with
| Slobberbone, Lalo Schifrin, the Isley Brothers, Iron + Wine, War, and
| Graham Parker. And his previous novel, Hard Revolution, featured a
| "soundtrack" CD given away at readings.

If you search their archives for "pelecanos" you'll turn up other mentions, which you can't read without paying. They do give brief excerpts, though.
