Read full description of the books:
So close to being a 5 star read, Mosley has scaled new heights in my estimation with this wonderful series of vignettes featuring Socartes Fortlow
Read on the plane from London to Copenhagen
It might even get upgraded to 5 stars after some more time but this took me by complete surprise after finding it for a measly 50 pence in a Colchester charity shop.
Technically these are short stories featuring the same character but the way that they put together in this volume it works as something similar to John Steinbeck's Cannery Row sequence but from a late 90s Black American perspective. Set in the black slums of LA these are the adventures of a proud man fighting against his roots and his past.
Always seeking morality in his situation and constantly working towards redemption but never suspecting it Socrates really is heroic in his outlook. Mosley never lets his stories become race centred but is always asking questions of his protagonist and his readers; Why do you live this way? What is your purpose in life? Is there a better way? Without ever getting preachy or judgemental. His character is a strong man who knows/believes he is weak and this is the perfect vehicle for Mosley's observations on life and these probing questions he wants to ask.
I enjoyed the Easy Rawlins series enough to want to finish it but this book really set Mosley at a whole new level. Very impressive indeed.
Edit: Just found out this was a made for TV movie starring Laurence Fishburne in 1998, if anyone has a lead on where I can see a copy, please leave a comment.
