Typical of all of Walter Mosley's Easy Rawlins mysteries, A Little Yellow Dog is well-written, exhaustively researched, and thoroughly enjoyable. Mr. Mosley is a wordsmith and craftsman and I don't think he is capable of writing a bad Easy Rawlins story.
The Main character is a school custodian named Easy.
Throw in a couple of dead bodies,a rascally yellow dog and a sexy teacher and you get a bawdy,colorful book!I loved it!
This is NOT your run of the mill detective story at all,by no means!! You will enjoy this book!
As one reviewer stated, thank heaven for Easy Rawlins and Walter Mosley. Another in the entertaining and enlightening series by a great author of mystery and culture. Anyone who begins to read Walter Mosley and likes good stories, good entertainment, and most of all, education in what a large part of our culture and living has really been, will want to read every Mosley book.
One of the Easy Rawlins series. Easy is a black man in LA in the early sixties. This is gritty, realistic stuff that lets you know what it was like in the ghetto in those days. It will also be considered literature, as well as a good mystery story.
Walter Mosley is such an excellent mystery writer. Each book is as good as if not better than the one before, and surely this one is satisfying and holds your interest right through to the end. It is not surprising that Mosley was one of President Clinton's favorite authors. A completely enjoyable read.
