Albert Murray. I haven't read anything by him yet. I have a couple of his books ordered. Sounds like an interesting guy from what I have read about him. Has anybody read his stuff?

What kind of books does he write? what genre, (if any)?

Oooh. I had never heard of him, but he looks super, super interesting. Thanks so much for posting!

(He was a novelist and critic, close with Ralph Ellison and other luminaries)

I bought elsewhere the first book in a trilogy he wrote. The first is Train Whistle Guitar. I managed to get the second book here and I have a request for the third book but it hasn't been sent yet. I think each book is fairly short. around 200pp.
