On The Wire: Thirteen Essays on The Wire, Season 1

Our regular readers, if they exist, will no doubt have noticed that our output has slowed to a trickle of late. While there are many reasons for this, the most significant is that we have been spending a lot of time focusing on releasing several e-books via the Amazon Kindle.

While our most exciting project, an updated version of our translation of the Tao Te Ching, will not be released until December, one of our side-projects, a series of essays on the first season of HBO’s series, The Wire, is available for purchase now.

On The Wire: Thirteen Essays on The Wire, Season 1, is an attempt to explore HBO’s legendary series from a thematic perspective, going beneath the surface narrative to find the larger commentaries on modern society and the many obstacles it faces. It deals with the season episode by episode, attempting to situate the themes of each individual instalment within the greater themes that guide the series itself.

For those of you with Kindles, it is available for $1. Just follow the link below:

For those of you who don’t have Kindles or find the $1 price-tag to be unreasonable, the collection (in a slightly less-edited and more typo-filled form) is still available in our Overthinking The Wire section.

Go ahead and enjoy the essays for free, but know that any purchases would be encouraging and greatly appreciated.
