I recently heard a reading of [b:Cotton Comes to Harlem|429940|Cotton Comes to Harlem (Harlem Cycle, #7)|Chester Himes|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1344370635s/429940.jpg|276418] on BBC radio (by the always superb Hugh Quarrie), and was completely blown away. I immediately sought out the beginning of the Harlem cycle, and was pleased to find this volume of the first three books.
