Interview with Walter Mosley & latest book Little Green

Join me in a delightful conversation with Walter Mosley on Thursday May 16, 2013 from 800AM-8: 30AM to discuss his latest book Little Green and the return of Easy Rollins! Walter Mosley is a New York City-based author, whose 37+ book literary career goes back to 1990′s Devil in a Blue Dress. That novel kicked off a series revolving around detective Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins — a Black resident of the Watts section of Los Angeles, whose continuing story begins in 1948, and (with the May 2013 release of his 12th story, Little Green) has progressed to 1967. Mosley also created the character of ex-convict Socrates Fortlow, the modern-day protagonist of Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned, and two other novels. Both Rawlins and Fortlow were adapted for the screen in the 1990s.

Short Description: 
RIP, New Deal. We hardly knew ye.

If you listen closely, you can hear the last rasping breaths of the New Deal as it lays down to die. For the first time in history, a sitting Democratic president has proposed cuts to Social Security -- the single most popular government program of all time, and a bedrock of the modern American social contract. Well played, sir.

Abe and Joe parse the semantics and the substance of this lamentable move.
