A compelling memoir by Chester Himes, African-American author of 40's crime fiction such as "Cotton Comes to Hollywood". He takes his reader into life experiences as divergent as incareration, living the ex-pat lifestyle, and literary fame. This unique autobiography gave me insight into his particular brand of race concious crime writing.
