Book: The Rowan - Anne McCaffrey
Song: Theme song from Season 2 of The Wire - Tom Waits
Why: The Rowan is about a group of psionics that are steveadores. As I was reading about them docking the cans I immediately thought about Season 2 of HBO's The Wire. I didn't know what a steveadore was before this show, but now I do and it made The Rowan more visual for me because of it! I have to admit that I'm a bigger fan of the Season 1 theme (same song, different artist), but I'm staying true to the story and posting this one.
