    I use non-fiction work written by Whites in my research. It's indispensable. That wasn't the problem. I said that "The Wire" was a cliché! It's like my writing a series about Jewish life and casting all of the characters as inside traders.

  • By Anonym

    I used to write my own versions of famous tales, such as William Tell or Robin Hood, and illustrate them myself, too.
