Writer Walter Mosley at The Harvard Club of New York City | [event details] HBS African American Alumni Association
Writer Walter Mosley at The Harvard Club of New York City
On Thursday, November 18th at 7:00 pm the critically acclaimed African American writer Walter Mosley will be speaking at The Harvard Club of New York City, 27 West 44 Street, Manhattan. This event would normally be open only to Harvard Club members, however a special invitation is being extended to all HBSAAA alumni and their guests who wish to attend. Mr. Mosley will be discussing his own personal memoirs from his book, The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey. The event is free, however you must RSVP to by Wednesday, November 17th.
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.

Name: Walter Mosley
Everyone - even Mosley - thought he was dead. His family were making arrangements for his funeral.
In my view, a new novel from Walter Mosley is something to take note of, but a new novel from Walter Mosley starring Easy Rawlins is an event.
Mosley is never more effective than when he has some social ills to work with and here he conjures an atmospheric historical setting, capturing effortlessly the peacenik, beatnik free-love vibe of L.A. While he was in a coma, the world changed and Easy learns to adapt quickly, presenting a fascinating viewpoint of one of the landmark eras of the modern age. His trawl through a hippie commune in search of the missing boy is surely a description as evocative as any memoir of the time.
Walter Mosley is the real deal. Whatever "transcends genre" really means, Mosley is all over it. He's a writer you can approach from any perspective. You want a fast pace and a strong plot? He's your man. Looking for all of that and layers of insight and a light touch examination of the human condition? Ditto.
