Hardly finished a year and The Wire is already history. Or at least fodder for media studies. See the new Continuum list. The book, out in December, ‘examines The Wire’s place in popular culture’. I’m intrigued by the title of the lead essay, ‘Baltimore before The Wire‘. Does this assume that the tv series is a historical text representing Baltimore at a particular time? I guess I’ll find out in December.
