This is simple. I'm reading King Suckerman by George P. Pelecanos. ISBN# 0-440-22595-7<P>If anyone is interested in an online discussion of the book, reply to this topic and go get the book. <P>Let's tentatively set the first week in August as when the discussion begins. We can do it earlier, but I want to give everyone time to get the book and read it. <P>After the initial discussion ends, we'll start a thread to choose the next book.<P>One of the issues I'm interested in talking about for King Suckerman: a white author writing about a black and white team and writing authentic black "voice." <P>Let's do this.<P>------------------

Ooh. I wanna do this, if only for the fact that I'm also a writer dealing with a similar but different (don't you love that phrase?) issue -- my main character, written in the first person, is very distinctly not my gender. I've gotta find this book now.<P>--Strange/Dave<P>------------------

I read King Suckerman. Good stuff if a bit rough n' violent. Reminded me of a Spencer novel but kind of faster, messier. <P>------------------

Well it was more than a year ago. I'll have to find my copy or get it from the library. I'll certainly try to be prepared!<P>Sorry you had to work on the fourth!
