Devil in a Blue Dress’

Walter Mosley’s noir classic is the California Book Club’s December 2020 selection.

Mosley’s celebrated 1990 novel introduces readers to Ezekiel “Easy” Rawlins, a World War II veteran who turns to detective work to make a living. Rooted in Watts, a historically African American neighborhood of Los Angeles, the story reinvigorated the hard-boiled mystery genre, populating it with rarely seen nonwhite characters. The book’s success led to a bestselling series of Easy Rawlins mysteries that follow the character into the 1960s (and to a 1995 film adaptation of Devil in a Blue Dress, directed by Carl Franklin and starring Denzel Washington).

One of Books Inc.’s favorite aspects of being booksellers is getting the chance to welcome and host hundreds of authors a year, from house-hold names to local, debut authors and we look forward to continuing to provide the Bay Area with “The Experience You Can’t Download” in our stores when we can assure authors and guests that it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we are working on an exciting list of virtual events for both adults and children and we look forward to exploring this new format with you.

Sales equate success, and as with in-store events, booksales made from an independent bookstore benefit the author, publisher, and lead to future event bookings. Please help us keep the Bay Area the wonderful literary hub that it is by supporting your local Books Inc.
