Since its final episode aired in 2008, HBO's acclaimed crime drama The Wire has only become more popular and influential. But while there has been a great deal of critical analysis of the show and its themes, until now there has never been a definitive, behind-the-scenes take on how it came to be made. With unparalleled access to all the key actors and writers involved in its creation, Jonathan Abrams' New York Times bestselling oral history, All the Pieces Matter, is an astonishing, compelling, and complete account of The Wire, from its inception and creation through its end and powerful legacy.
