Signed by Author without inscription on title page. Unread. In protective mylar cover.In this cycle of 14 bittersweet stories, Walter Mosley breaks out of the genre, if not the setting, of his bestselling Easy Rawlins detective novels. Only eight years after serving out a prison sentence for murder, Socrates Fortlow lives in a tiny, two room Watts apartment, where he cooks on a hot plate, scavenges for bottles, drinks, and wrestles with his demons. Struggling to control a seemingly boundless rage, as well as the power of his massive "rock breaking" hands, Socrates must find a way to live an honorable life as a black man on the margins of a white world, a task which takes every ounce of self-control he has.
