a note on Re-reading from Walter Mosley

Walter Mosley - By the Book quote

“…the first time the reader works her way through the volume it’s more like a first date than a one-time encounter. If the person was uninteresting (not worthwhile) there’s no need for a repeat performance, but if they have promise, good humor, hope or just good manners, you might want to have a second sit-down, a third. There might be something irksome about that rendezvous that makes you feel that you have something to work out. There might be a hint of eroticism suggesting the possibility of a tryst or even marriage.”

—Walter Mosley, from the By the Book section of the New York Times. Mosley is an American author who’s known for his crime fiction such as Devil in a Blue Dress.
