I'm a Pinterest fanatic and maintain several boards. Some time ago, I started a board called On My List, tracking books I fantasize about reading in the near future. Today, I encountered...
The cover art and intriguing title author Walter Mosley chose for his novel definitely compelled me take a second look. Here's the summary provided on Amazon:
In this scorching, mournful, often explicit, and never less than moving literary novel by the famed creator of the Easy Rawlins series, Debbie Dare, a black porn queen, has to come to terms with her sordid life in the adult entertainment industry after her tomcatting husband dies in a hot tub. Electrocuted. With another woman in there with him. Debbie decides she just isn't going to "do it anymore." But executing her exit strategy from the porn world is a wrenching and far from simple process.
If you've read the novel, I'd be interested to know your thoughts.
