Re: RARA-AVIS: Chester Himes in New Yorker

Really interesting article.

In an aisde, it notes: "In this, Himes's work bears a distinct relationship to that of Rudolph Fisher, whose 1932 novel "The Conjure-Man Dies" is considered the first detective novel by a black American."

Has anyone read this book? Is it good? Is it hardboiled?
