my longer review can be found here:


It's of course rather bloggish and not very thorough. And I don't get into details or possible errors in the book. But yes, Chester Himes was already writing stories in the thirties - but not for pulps, I think he aimed for higher markets and possibly some black magazines (or "Negro" magazines, as they were called at the time). Someone else here knows more about Himes than me, I'm sure.
