Product description


[A Rage in Harlem] quickly achieved deserved cult status. The writing is a sheer delight: hard and edgy but never far from a wisecrack, and the plot vibrates with con-men, hard-nosed cops and shysters dressed as nuns. * * Time Out * * This tense puzzle is witty, angry and full of disturbing social insights. * * The Times * * [This book] assuredly earns the appellation classic. . . Himes challenges his readers to confront violence with a brutal realism that loses none of its impact today. * * The Herald * *

Product Description

Jackson's woman has found him a foolproof way to make money - a technique for turning ten dollar bills into hundreds. But when the scheme somehow fails, Jackson is left broke, wanted by the police and desperately racing to get back both his money and his loving Imabelle.

The first of Chester Himes's novels featuring the hardboiled Harlem detectives Coffin Ed Johnson and Grave Digger Jones, A Rage in Harlem has swagger, brutal humour, lurid violence, a hearse loaded with gold and a conman dressed as a Sister of Mercy.

With a new Introduction by Luc Sante.
