Walter Mosley, L.A.'s easy writer
...
You can take Walter Mosley out of Los Angeles - in fact, Mosley did so himself, moving to New York decades ago - but you can't take L.A. out of Walter Mosley. The master of several genres keeps the city present, from his Easy Rawlins detective novels set in black postwar Los Angeles to the Greek-myths-in-South-Central elements in one of the two novellas in his latest volume. Mosley appeared to wrap it up with Rawlins in "Blonde Faith" in 2007, but five years later, he's found more for his most famous detective to do, just as Mosley has for himself. He has a fledgling production company, B.O.B. (for "Best of Brooklyn") Filmhouse, and still writes with one foot in 212 and another here in 213.

Walter Mosley, one of America's most acclaimed and best-loved writers, is known around the world as author of the bestselling Leonid McGill and Easy Rawlins mysteries.
...
A spellbinding storyteller and cultural observer, Mosley is also the author of sixteen previous non-mystery novels, "a writer whose work transcends category and qualifies as serious literature" (Time). Now, Mosley deploys his wisdom as a literary novelist to craft The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey (Riverhead Books), a vivid and gripping novel about aging, memory, history, and family written as Mosley was facing issues with his own mother, including the quest for autonomy and the concern for legacy. Mosley speaks eloquently to one of the most pressing but under-addressed social concerns of an aging nation, and creates for the first time a young, female leading character as formidable and unforgettable as her aged male counterpart. The thirtieth novel from one of today's literary icons, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is a riveting tour de force. Mosley's fiction has been published in publications including The New Yorker, GQ, Esquire, Savoy, and The Nation. He has received numerous honors, including an O. Henry Award, a Grammy, and PEN America's Lifetime Achievement Award.
