RL's Dream

Walter Mosley: RL's Dream (USA 1996)

From the Publisher:
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.

RL's Dream

Walter Mosley: RL's Dream (USA 1995)

From the Publisher:
RL's Dream is a novel about the blues - the blues as an expression of black poetry and black tragedy and how they sit in judgment on the American experience.

In contemporary New York, aging bluesman Soupspoon Wise is alone, ill, and dying. He has played his music in a thousand bars, clubs, and juke joints, but never so memorably as the time he played with one Robert "RL" Johnson in the Mississippi delta. That brief, indelible encounter with the great genius of country blues haunts Soupspoon, much as Johnson himself is said to have been possessed by Satan. And so Soupspoon proceeds to tell his story to Kiki Waters, the young white woman who has taken him in, another refugee from a South she can neither deny nor escape.

RL's Dream

Walter Mosley: RL's Dream (UK 1995)

From the Publisher:
Aging bluesman Soupspoon Wise is alone and dying. He's played his music in a thousand bars and juke joints, but nothing, nothing could ever beat playing with Robert 'RL' Johnson back in the Mississippi Delta. Soupspoon is haunted by that brief encounter with the great musician, the genius who sold his sold to the Devil. Mosley's thrillers have been hailed as novels of depth and complexity that throw open the moral, physical and social landscape of personal and collective pain and redemption that confirms his status as one of America's finest writers.

Walter Mosley: RL's Dream. Serpent's Tail, ISBN 1852423757 (May, 1995), 267 p., £9.99.
