Laura Lippman on NPR

I caught part of her interview on the Morning edition a few days ago. I never realized that her Tess Monaghan series (of which I have yet to read) is based in Baltimore.

I think Laura sums things up quite well when she says, "Anyone can love a perfect place. Loving Baltimore takes some resilience."

I love that quote and can quite easily employ it to describe the city I grew up in...Mumbai

lotus reads - It is the perfect quote for those not-quite perfect cities!

This was the one "Crime in the City" report I missed. Bummer. I haven't read any of the Lippman books but I keep hearing good things about them. That is a great quote for any of those not-so perfect cities.
