Be prepared for an involving listen with DRAMA CITY. Narrator Chad Coleman melts invisibly into the characters populating the title precinct--a drug- and crime-ridden section of Washington, D.C. As author Pelecanos perceptively traces the cursed lives of gang members, drug addicts, and poverty-stricken ghetto-dwellers, portraying the inevitable violence and cruelty they encounter throughout their days, Coleman brings compassion to the characters. Thanks to both incisive writing and a skilled performance, DRAMA CITY will bring listeners to a gritty and disturbing part of the U.S. capital.
