Mystery sensation Pelecanos pens the lead story and edits this groundbreaking collection of stories detailing the seedy underside of the nation's capital. This is not an anthology of ill-conceived and inauthentic political thrillers. Instead, in D.C. Noir, pimps, whores, gangsters, and con-men run rampant in zones of this city that most never hear about.
A wistful look back at a young Hispanic woman’s “MGM”, which stands for “My Grandmama”. The narrator often channels “MGM” for advice as she tries to succeed as a second-generation American. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Yolanda Lloyd, Tony Plana, Rose Portillo, Ruben Sierra and Renée Victor. Directed by Peggy Shannon. Recorded before a live audience in June 1992.
