Praise

“A sensual, surreal, cartoonishly violent and breathtakingly bawdy comic universe. . . . A raw but bracing locale . . . bursting with life and sadness, joyously bitter as well as unabashedly sensual.”
     —Los Angeles Times

“One of the most important American writers of the 20th century. . . . A quirky American genius.” —Walter Mosley

“Chester Himes is one of the towering figures of the black literary tradition. His command of nuances of character and dynamics of plot is preeminent among writers of crime fiction. He is a master craftsman.” —Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

“Their deft mixture of race relations and police-work are as entertaining as sociology as they are as mysteries.” —The Boston Globe
