Watching and waiting

Meet Joseph Mitchell, the New Yorker journalist who was so meticulous in his writing and researching style that he went thirty years without even submitting a single article for publication. It's fascinating, too, that despite this apparently fastidious attention to detail, he nevertheless indulged in the odd spot of fictionalising. Suddenly that fifth and final season of The Wire doesn't seem quite so far-fetched after all.
