Duke University Press is pleased to announce the publication of a new book
of interest to Screen-L subscribers.
*On The Wire* is a sophisticated examination of the HBO serial drama that
aired from 2002 until 2008, Linda Williams, a leading film scholar and
authority on the interplay between film, melodrama, and issues of race,
suggests what exactly it is that makes *The Wire* so good. She argues that
its narrative power derives from its genre, popular melodrama.
