"Bestselling author Walter Mosley has proven himself a master of narrative tension, both with his extraordinary fiction and gripping writing for television. The Awkward Black Man collects seventeen of Mosley's most accomplished short stories to display the full range of his remarkable talent. Mosley presents distinct characters as they struggle to move through the world in each of these stories - heroes who are awkward, nerdy, self-defeating, self-involved, and, on the whole, odd. He overturns the stereotypes that corral black male characters and paints a subtle, powerful portrait of each of these unique individuals."--Provided by publisher.

Waiting for it. But, if its like any other Mosley work, I will dig it. One exception. Can't remember name of the book, but was pretty pornographic.

Hi, its me the book, its really good...Mosley can write, and I think his strong point is short stories...

So, if you like good writing, this is for you.
PLEASE read this book, along with all his other books...Talked to a pal, he really likes the Easy Rawlins too...READ them dammit
