The Right Mistake
The Further Philosophical Investigations of Socrates Fortlow
Other Editions of This Title:
Infiltrated by undercover cops and threatened by strain from within, the Thinkers' Club doesn't't have it easy. But simply by debating racial authenticity, street justice, and the possibility of mutual understanding, Socrates and his unlikely crew actually begin to make a difference.
The Right Mistake is Walter Mosley at his most incisive. At once an affectionate and coruscating portrait of ghetto life, it abides the possibility of personal redemption and even, with great struggle, social change.
