I didn’t mean to move our BookClub discussion from Richard Russo to Walter Mosely. Still, both are masters at characters with interwoven stories, maybe more than they know.
The Russo book was “Empire Falls,” also an excellent two-part movie with Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Ed Harris, Helen Hunt, and other worthies. The Mosely titles we talked about happened to be the two latest Easy Rawlins books, “Rose Gold” and “Charcoal Joe.”
Near as I can tell, anything by either author is worth your time. If you need a suggestion.
