Very Good. After four increasingly well-received crime novels starring Los Angeles PI Easy Rawlins, Mosley has moved strongly ahead to a more searching and deepl y felt style and subject. He writes here of Atwater "Soupspoon" Wise, a bat tered, failing relic of a man who once played backup to legendary Delta jaz z guitarist Robert "RL" Johnson and who is now barely surviving on New York 's Lower East Side. When we meet him, Soupspoon, who has cancer, is being e victed from his tiny apartment. Enter Kiki Waters, a hard-drinking, profane redhead who fled a life of horror and incest in Arkansas and now ekes out an uneasy living at a Wall Street insurance firm. With her tough street sma rts, she stops the eviction cold, uses her office know-how to fake lavish h ealth insurance for Soupspoon and moves him in with her. They cling togethe r, these two outcasts from hard times, Soupspoon with a gentleness born of deep resignation, Kiki with a protective desperation fueled by booze and ra ge. Gradually, Soupspoon's life begins to mend: someone he knew as a kid in the South offers him a gig at his after-hours drinking place; a pretty you ng girl is drawn to his sweetness. But for Kiki, the only way out is throug h violence and flight. Mosley has always been a vivid writer, but here his work achieves a constant level of dark poetry: he flawlessly integrates Sou pspoon's and Kiki's past harsh lives and memories with the keenly observed contemporary New York slum scene as the bittersweet blues constantly sound somber chords beneath. There is no false sentimental note anywhere in the b ook, just a deeply moving creation of two extraordinary people who achieve, Washington Square Press, 1996, Billboard Books, 1994 Trade paperback. 4.

NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 335pp. Trade Paperback. This is a dystopian novel, in the same vein as The Handmaid's Tale , 1984 and a Brave New World. The book starts out starkly enough. It is obviously winter and the setting is in what used to be the United Kingdom. An eight year old boy is ripped from his family's home and placed in a re-education center during the early part of what we learn is termed "The ReArrangement". The Government has ordered the removal of children and other adults during the early part of the rearrangement and moved to different zones, depending upon psychology, or the four humors: choleric, melancholic, phlegmatic and sanguine. Placed into an orphanage and renamed Thomas Parry, he is then transferred to a new family in the Red District. As he grows into adulthood, he becomes a rising star in the Red Quarter bureaucracy, where his main responsibility is to oversee the expulsion of people to other quarters. During a business trip to the Blue Quarter, he goes to a nightclub where he receives visions of what his life was life before the Re-Arrangement and, as a result, he begins to question his absolute faith in the current scheme of things. He actually manages to visit each of the other quarters during this voyage of self-discovery. Thomas becomes caught up in a terror attack in the Yellow Quarter; is shipwrecked on the coast of the Blue Quarter, and is farmed off to an angst-ridden Green Quarter boarding house, eventually escaping and joining the itinerant and stateless White People, a band of nomadic outsiders who drift aimlessly from quarter to quarter, spurned and shunned by the populations of this new and unsettling world. He realizes, over the course of his journeys, that while people may be different, they really just long to be together again and not forcefully separated. Now, all this may seem somewhat depressing and bleak; but it also comes across as eerily prescient. One gets the feeling that our society is slowly getting to the point where our governments may feel that it has no choice but to separate people out depending upon their psychological make-up, even if it means tearing up families and exacerbating the evils that they intended to fight by splitting people up in the first place. I found myself able to explore my own perceptions about the role of the individual and the family in society, while reading about Thomas' perceptions and experiences within the various "families" that he encounters and/or becomes a part of. I really enjoyed this novel and would recommend it to anyone with the stomach for a truly absorbing and thought-provoking dystopian experience., Random House: Vintage International, 2006., Gramercy.

She ran away from home at age seventeen to escape her mother's mental illness and instinctively continues running from anything or anyone that threatens the emotional armor she proactively wears. Her sharp wit and innate singing talent keep her afloat while she pursues her dream of becoming a rock-and-roll star, the elusive prize she believes will somehow bring her the validation she deserves. In fact, music is the only thing that makes unequivocal sense in Tallie's life, and to her delight, it is a convenient reason to keep moving, from city to city, gig to gig, relationship to relationship. Eventually, her luck runs out, and at age thirty four, divorced, fired from her latest band and broke, Tallie is crossing the country in her old beat-up car back home to Denver. There she will face the only job her agent could get for her, singing in a tacky piano bar, and the mother and sister she abandoned seventeen years ago whom she will now have to rely on, and somehow tolerate, until she's back on her feet again. To her amazement, Tallie learns that her mother's mental illness is now effectively controlled by medication, and her little sister is now a grown woman, married and the mother of a nine year-old daughter. Perhaps the only thing that hasn't changed is Tallie. She reassures herself Denver is just a temporary stop until something better comes along. As she struggles to make sense of her life, revive her career and reconnect with her family, Tallie is startled and comforted by the resurgence of her imaginary childhood guardian, Big Gal Sal, Queen of the Delta Blues, who coerces Tallie into viewing her life and relationships from a new perspective. If Tallie can achieve that, she may finally grow up. Beautifully written and accented with just the right amount of back story, Riding with the Queen is an insightful tale about family dynamics in the shadow of mental illness, acceptance, and understanding. Though the subject matter is serious, Tallie is a fun, witty character you'll enjoy getting to know., Penguin Group: New American Library (Accent Books), 2003., Harlequin. Paperback. New.

As readers of Jones's debut novel, Ordinary Money , discovered, he has a keen eye for the foolish and incongruous moments in daily existence, and a knack for portraying the hard-pressed lives of those on the edge of financial disaster. The protagonist of his second novel, theoretical physicist Mark Perdue, is at the other end of the financial spectrum: at age 23 he published a brilliant theory and now, four years later, he is rich and famous and holds a prestigious chair at Berkeley. But the next-door neighbor in his condo development is just such another feckless down-and-outer: Roger Hoberman's pizza restaurant is failing, his divorced wife is rejecting his efforts at reconciliation and he is about to be evicted from his home. Even so, Roger involves Mark in a harebrained scheme to thwart an attempt to press an old claim against their properties. Mark, who feels guilty about his good luck--including his recent marriage to a beautiful and brainy lawyer--is drawn into Roger's plan to install fenceposts on their property in the dead of night. An absurdist comic caper ensues, fueled by many beers and even more contretemps. Jones succeeds in conveying the cluttered, perpetually analyzing mind of a scientist: Mark is obsessive-compulsive about observing certain rituals, and his attention constantly wanders as he ponders the nature of time and space. Jones is equally adept at capturing the oddly endearing Roger's blue-collar lifestyle and manner of speaking. But perhaps because Mark's ruminations tend to slow the narrative, the novel never gains the dramatic momentum of Ordinary Money . Even so, as Mark realizes that blind human nature can outwit scientific knowledge, the novel moves to a satisfying close., Random House: Vintage, 1994.
