His use of Windy City Blues book is sufficient to create a strong image of characters and setting, while never being so deep and convoluted that they slow the pacing of the story. Blacks came up from the south as part of the Great Migration and Jews came from Europe. Those who read Windy City Blues will encounter Jewish immigrant life on Maxwell Street, the unregulated early days of the recording industry, and the intransigency of racial and religious discrimination. This story is a great read, and Jules Landau is a character who carries the possibilities of serving as the center of an interesting series. A timely, captivating love story that kept me reading long into the night.

An ode to diversity and love''s enduring power to unite. There are settings in the book where, as I was reading, I felt like I was right there. A vivid and thought-provoking tale that will have your toes tapping! I was engrossed by this novel. On top of all of that, Chicago just announced that a blues experience museum will open in

But I feel we're still not nearly as open and accepting as we should be. Racial conflict--black, white, Jewish--is front and center, making the struggles and triumphs as relevant to today's world as they were sixty years ago, strumming the same heartbreaking, soulful, all-too-human riff. The Warshawski family tree's tangled roots have tripped the detective up before, and they do so again here. Fifty years ago, they were rare and shocking. Rosen will answer questions and sign books at each event.
