    PDF/EPUB William Melvin Kelley Ñ dem PDF â Ñ dem EpubDelightfully viciously righteously sharp but very very broad and unfortunately rather scattered I definitely recommend reading the recent New Yorker article about Kelley which is fascinating and tragic You can see a great deal of his talent even in this flawed novel but it is clear he never got the editorial support he deserved
