An Inner City Hero

by SeldomSeen on Dec 17, 2007

I was expecting some sort of crime drama, but Walkin' the Dog is a literary character study--a series of moral conflicts facing an ex-con living in Watts. Filled with anger and bitterness, Socrates Furlow never-the-less thinks about things and, despite the odds stacked against him, attempts to do the right thing. Though there's not a great deal of action, the character is so well drawn, he gets under your skin. Written as a series of self-contained chapters, Walkin' the Dog is well-crafted and easy to read. Take a little vacation to inner city L.A., if you dare...
