When Walter Mosley first burst onto the literary scene in 1990 with his Easy Rawlins mystery, Devil in a Blue Dress – a combustible mixture of Raymond Chandler and Richard Wright – he captured the attention of hundreds and thousands of readers (including future president Bill Clinton). Wednesday, December 18, 3 pm ET, Walter Mosely visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show for an in-depth conversation about his life, his writing, and the long-awaited return of Easy Rawlins in Mosley’s new mystery: Little Green.
Walter Mosley started writing at age 34 and legend has it that he has written every day since, penning more than forty books and often publishing two books a year. Devil in a Blue Dress was made into an acclaimed film starring Denzel Washington. Always Outnumbered was an HBO film starring Laurence Fishburne, adapted from Mosley’s first Socrates Fortlow novel, soon to be revived by Fishburne on HBO. Mosley’s short fiction has been published in a wide array of publications including The New Yorker, GQ, Esquire, USA Weekend, Los Angeles Times Magazine and Savoy. A native of Los Angeles and a graduate of Goddard College, he holds an MFA from CNY and lives in Brooklyn, New York. He is the winner of numerous awards, including an O. Henry Award, a Grammy, and PEN America’s Lifetime Achievement Award. He is also a playwright and an artist and every bit as interesting as the characters he crafts.
