    From “master of the genre” (Washington Post) Walter Mosley, Detective Easy Rawlins’ latest client sends him down a warren of memory and nostalgia—blinding him to reason and risk.

    Walter Mosley is one of America’s most celebrated modern-day crime fiction writers. In 2020, he received the 2020 National Book Award’s Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters. He has been named a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America. His work has been translated into 25 languages. As an executive producer, he adapted his novel The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey for AppleTV+ and serves as a writer and executive producer for FX’s Snowfall.

    This will be Walter Mosley’s fifth appearance at Live Talks LA. In 2019, we hosted him in conversation with Pulitzer prize-winning author Viet Thanh Nguyen on the art of writing fiction. Here’a the video.

    Easy Rawlins returns in Walter Mosley’s latest, Farewell, Amethystine, set in January 1970. All is right in the world of LA’s premiere Black detective… and then Amethystine Stoller arrives. Her ex-husband is missing. And as Easy takes his first step in the investigation, he trips and falls into the memory of things past— loss, love, a world war, and a hunger that has eaten at him since he was a Black boy on his own on the streets of Fifth Ward, Houston, Texas.

    Easy finds himself pressed into a reckoning and has to make a choice that will almost certainly hasten a permanent descent, one that might sunder his soul.
