Re: RARA-AVIS: BUST appearances by Bruen and Starr

One other in thing I noticed in BUST was a reference to New York being a
"twisted city," as in TWISTED CITY by one Jason Starr. This reminded me of something in the TV show THE WIRE, which George Pelecanos produces (or executive produces--I don't know from television). A couple of hoods are talking about Washington, D.C., and one calls it Chocolate City. "They be calling it Drama City now," says the other. Having read Pelecanos's DRAMA CITY, I winked knowingly at the screen.
