The Big Blowdown
Route 1 crosses the Potomac River from Virginia and enters Washington, D.C. at the Tidal Basin and runs into the National Mall, where monuments, museums, and Federal office buildings cluster. It then jogs east before turning northward through the city’s core downtown area before travelling through historically African-American neighborhoods, and running northeast through middle-class neighborhoods on its way to the Maryland border. In The Big Blowdown, George Pelecanos vividly portrays the portion of downtown DC that Route 1 runs through as it was during the 1930s-50s, when it was a hustling, bustling neighborhood filled with Italian and Greek immigrants. Populated by drug-addled hookers and cops, ex-GI loan sharks, and heavy doses of period detail, the book shows a Washington, D.C. entirely unfamiliar to guidebooks and far more real.
