Malcolm X #AngelOfHarlem
Really enjoyed this fictionalised telling of Malcolm‘s early life, which is based on known facts and is also written by his daughter. Quite an interesting early life! Do thoroughly recommend it.
After seeing the brill posts so far esp ref the wonderful billie holliday i had to try and think of something. I saw the film yrs ago when rourke was handsome, harry angel detective, & de niro made good films +was the devil. But i looked up the book and it is now one i have to read, looks great - in searching the author mentions the seedy 50s ny he set the book in incl the 'long gone huberts flea circu harlem'.
Has anyone read Persia Walker? Her name keeps popping up when I‘m looking for challenge reads for next year. She writes crime novels, set in jazz-age Harlem. Think I may have to give them a go.
