Meet Rafael Alvarez

  • December 18, 2015

The author of Crabtown, USA reads in Baltimore this Sunday, Dec. 20th, at 6PM.


Rafael Alvarez continues to chronicle life in his native Baltimore with his tenth book, Crabtown, USA, which hits bookstores in time for the holiday season. A follow-up to his nonfiction anthologies Hometown Boy and Storyteller, Crabtown chronicles the author's continued fascination with the everyday eccentrics who make Charm City compelling, heartbreaking, beautiful, and weird.

A former reporter for the Baltimore Sun and staff writer for the HBO drama "The Wire," Alvarez writes fiction from his grandparents' home in East Baltimore and has just completed a screenplay about the Nazi occupation of Greece. His other notable works include Tales from the Holy Land and The Wire: Truth Be Told.
