Yet another reason to want

Yet another reason to want HBO. Based on a book by David Simon, who also wrote Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets. Seems like there's a small category of authors that live for a year alongside their subjects before writing about their experiences. Tracy Kidder has written some very good books (most famously The Soul of a New Machine) with this basic method.
