Behind the scenes and onto the streets with one of the most acclaimed series of all timeAbout the Author:
RAFAEL ALVAREZ was born in Baltimore in 1958 and educated at Catholic schools. He received an English degree from Loyola College in Baltimore in 1981.
His books include Orlo and Leini, a collection of short fiction, and Storyteller, an anthology of his two decades of feature reporting for the Baltimore Sun.
In 2009, Alvarez published an essay on the expansive nature of storytelling - as evidenced in his fiction and THE WIRE - in Third Person: Authoring and Exploring Vast Narratives, released by the MIT Press of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
DAVID SIMON's Homicide: A Year in the Killing Streets won the Edgar and Anthony Awards and became the basis for the award-winning NBC drama. Simon's second book, The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighbourhood, co-authored with Ed Burns, was made into an Emmy-winning HBO miniseries. Simon was an executive writer and producer for HBO's Peabody Award-winning series THE WIRE. He lives in Baltimore.
