Felicia "Snoop" Pearson, of HBO's The Wire fame has penned a riveting new memoir; Grace After Midnight.
Fans of the Wire will recognize the strong Baltimore accent and confident swagger which personifies ’Snoop’s' character on the HBO hit TV series. Pearson's portrayal, erringly realistic, is no accident, or the product of acting school; but the result of living the life portrayed in the HBO Drama.
Told in a series of short, accessible, chapters, we are led by the hand through Pearson's rough and tumble life: absent biological parents, homosexuality, manslaughter, drug dealing it is all laid out for all to see in plain unassuming language.
The most remarkable part of this story is Pearson's encounter with of grace. Grace is how Pearson made the transition from ex-con drug dealer to TV star. Her ability to recognize and ultimately accept grace, is a lesson from which we can all benefit.

Midnight is a highly recommended read ’ especially for The Wire
