I first heard of Mosley because of one of these presidential reading stories about Clinton taking Black Betty with him to Martha's Vineyard in, I think, 1994. I picked it up that week and have been a Mosley reader ever since. It was the summer before my last year of high school.
It would make me happy if Pelecanos (or Richard Price) gained a few readers as well from this.
