Reviews

"The Wire will knock the breath out of you . . . literary television that broadens the mind and blows the heart open . . . a beautiful, brave series." -- Virginia Heffernan
"The breadth and ambition of The Wire are unrivaled . . . taken cumulatively over the course of a season--any season--it's an astonishing display of writing, acting, and storytelling that must be considered alongside the best literature and filmmaking in the modern era." -- Tim Goodman
"Not the usual coffee-table photo book, but something substantial, complex, honest, challenging, revealing, funny, and also unprecedented, and unique--a book, in other words, worthy of The Wire." -- Tony Kushner
