be careful of Kerry.) (And a couple of the others.)

Just reading DRAMA CITY. I always like Pelecanos - the dialogue is a bit impenetrable to those of us in the UK (as always <g>) but the
"life" comes across very movingly. And a friend of mine in USP Terre Haute, who comes from thereabouts, tells me it's all pretty authentic. Question: was it somebody here who said that Pelecanos is having to stop writing these because of some disagreement with publishers about their darkness? Can't remember the details.
