Soupspoon Wise is dying on the unforgiving streets of New York City, years and worlds away from the Mississippi delta, where he once jammed with blues legend Robert "RL" Johnson. It was an experience that burned indelibly into Soupspoon's soul — never mind that they said RL's gift came from the Devil himself. Now it's Soupspoon's turn to strike a deal with a stranger. An alcoholic angel of mercy, Kiki Waters isn't much better off than Soupspoon, but she too is a child of the South, and knows its pull. And she is determined to let Soupspoon ride out the final notes of his haunting blues dream, to pour out the remarkable tale of what he's seen, where he's been — and where he's going.

Having read all of the author's books to date, RL's Dream is his best literary work, in my opinion. Easy Rawlins and company have wonderful entertainment value, but this one is simply fine writing. It's advertised for $1.00 on the B&N site today - the absolute book bargain of the year!!

I was truly mesmerized by Mosley's writing and completely connected to the characters. This was my first of Mosley's books, and I'm definitely looking forward to more.
