Description: Highly anticipated since its initial online appearance and immediate viral proliferation, first-time authors and ersatz Victorian scholars Joy DeLyria and Sean Michael Robinson have painstakingly created a satirical and fictional world based on the characters and narrative of television’s most beloved drama, The Wire. To be published in time to celebrate The Wire’s tenth anniversary, Down in the Hole: The unWired World of H.B. Ogden is a collection of excerpts and illustrations from "The Wire," a Victorian serial novel of DeLyria and Robinson’s invention, credited to fictional author H.B. Ogden. Excerpts from Ogden’s work are knit together by the history of the novel, its author and illustrator, and the adventures of the passionate archivists who uncovered this forgotten text. DeLyria and Robinson have gone to great lengths to maintain the reality of the satirical world they have constructed, as in this early press release: “Difficult. Tangled. Funny, dark, and, once, almost forgotten. The Wire, Horatio B. Ogden's novel about the crime-ridden streets of ‘Bodymore’ was recently brought back to public light through the work of Joy DeLyria and Sean Michael Robinson. In March, 2011 DeLyria and Robinson released a reappraisal of the work, accompanied by a brief excerpt and illustrations. ‘We were surprised and gratified by the reaction to the article,’ said Joy DeLyria. ‘Who knew there was such an audience for unknown Victorian-era serial fiction, especially in this junk culture of spin-offs, sequels and tired retreads.’ “DeLyria and Robinson have unearthed a wealth of primary sources relating to The Wire and its creator, including one of the only extant copies of The Wire's five-volume publication. They have also painstakingly restored the existing prints of the copperplate etchings of Baxter ‘Bubz’ Black, whose grimy, earthy illustrations lent the environment of The Wire another layer of social commentary. Down in the Hole breathes new life into this literary classic, giving us once again a well-loved story, while at the same time illuminating the tumultuous life of its creator, the searing commentary of contemporaries, the difficulties of the Victorian Age, and the reason works like this may be forgotten, but never lost.”
