KWIK KWOTES: You Don’t Have To Go To College To Be Street Smart ….

“He didn’t get past the tenth grade, but that didn’t mean anything. He read bodybuilding magazines and did crossword puzzles . He could break down an engine. He was smart.”

George Pelecanos The Cut  copyright 2011 by Goerge P. Pelecanos published by Reagan Arthur Books/Little, Brown and Company

The Cut - book cover

 

In addition to being a best-selling author of over a dozen novels Mr. Pelecanos was a writer and producer of The Wire the best (in my humble opinion) cable TV drama ever and (obviously)  an admirer of the late great mystery novelist Elmore Leonard (and that can never be wrong.)
