An professor at the University of Cincinnati wrote a book about the HBO crime drama “The Wire.”
English and History professor Stanley Corkin released “Connecting The Wire: Race, Space, and Postindustrial Baltimore,” on Feb. 14.
The book features a black-and-white image from the TV show that ran on HBO from 2002 to 2008, according to UC. Corkin’s book provides a season-by-season analysis of “The Wire.”
The show, according to UC, is considered one of the best American television dramas and continues to grow its fan base through streaming services like HBO Go and Amazon Prime.
Corkin’s book is the first comprehensive scholarly study of “The Wire,” according to UC. Corkin has also written books on Western films and movies filmed in New York in the 1970s, among others.
