The Dybbuk in a Blue Dress

Walter Mosley, the Los Angeles born writer, is best known for creating Easy Rawlins, a black private investigator who, from his imaginative beat in Watts, propelled Mosley’s volumes into the hands of Bill Clinton, and into a movie starring Denzel Washington.
He sat down with Jeffrey A. Trachtenberg of the Wall Street Journal to speak about his newest protagonist, Ben Dibbuk. A little quote from the interview for flavor: “I’m Jewish. My mother is Jewish.”
His thoughts on book publishing, mysteries and Yiddish abound.

  1. I love Walter Mosley – have known he was Jewish for years but it seems a lot of people still aren’t aware. I’ll admit, I have read almost every single one of his books including the entire Easy Rawlins series
