Steve Lopez is senior writer-at-large for Time Inc. During his twelve years as a columnist for The Philadelphia Inquirer, he received the H. L. Mencken Award, The Ernie Pyle Award for Human Interest Writing, and the Sigma Delta Chi Award for Magazine Reporting. He is the author of Third and Indiana, a novel, and Land of the Giants, a collection of essays. He lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.From AudioFile:
This roman ˆ clef of Philadelphia lowlife boasts sharp characterizations, a reporter's eye for detail and fascinating digression, buckets of local color and tubs of good-natured humor. The plot concerns an assistant D.A. who must set aside vital public business when ordered to pursue a gaggle of aging, no-longer-threatening mobsters. The tone is Runyunesque. Steven Bauer has a homely, slightly adenoidal voice with the gravelly sound of one on the last leg of a long debauch. The effect is appropriate and oddly winning. He has a lot of fun with the dialogue but gives some sloppy line readings of the narrative. Y.R. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
