Abstract:

"In Finding a Way Home, thirteen essays by scholars from four countries trace Walter Mosley's distinctive approach to representing African American responses to the feeling of homelessness in an inhospitable America." "These essays examine Mosley's queries about the meaning of "home" in various social and historical contexts. Essayists consider the concept - whether it be material, social, cultural, or virtual - in all three of Mosley's detective/crime fiction series (Easy Rawlins, Socrates Fortlow, and Fearless Jones), his three books of speculative fiction, two of his "literary" novels (RL's Dream, The Man in My Basement), and in his recent social and political nonfiction."--Jacket.
