|Plot Summary of Six Easy Pieces|
Atria, Jan 2003, 24.00, 208 pp.
This seven-story anthology focuses on the life of Easy Rawlins as he tries to serve as a role model for his two kids, be faithful to his sweetheart, and stay off the streets of 1964 Watts. Six of the tales were included one at a time with the recent releases of the first six Mouse novels. Yet in spite of the not long ago reissues of these tales, fans will relish seeing them along with one new story in this book though cost should be considered. As always the cast including the allegedly dead Mouse makes Walter Mosley's contributions so much fun to read. SIX EASY PIECES is an easy historical mystery read.
