George Pelecanos & Crime in the City

Today novelist George Pelecanos toured Washington DC in Morning Edition‘s annual “Crime in the City” series.

We interviewed executive producer Madhulika Sikka on the Morning Media Menu this week, going behind the scenes at the series. Sikka sends reporters all around the world to interview crime novelists about the cities in their novels for the series.

She explained the selection process in the interview: “It helps if the books fit our criteria. Then we look at our resources and see where we can send people. We’ve got to make it work … It is very much a human reaction. Myself and my editor, we do the first pass on looking at things and what seems likely. My office is stacked high with Crime in the City books. and they are all great reads … we are really trying to Dehli in India, I’m hoping we will be able to that next week.”
