Norton, 1990), a book of short stories Walking the Dog (Little Brown, 1999) *Author of Working on the Chain Gang (Ballantine, 2000) Walter Mosley is best known as a novelist, and particularly for his mysteries featuring Easy Rawlins. In his latest book, Working on the Chain Gang, Mosley breaks out of fiction to deliver a scathing critique of the American economic system— a system in which all people become the property of the economic "machine," and in which the only value is profit.
