Publisher's Summary

The beloved Ezekiel Rawlins now has a steady job as senior head custodian of Sojourner Truth High School, a nice house with a garden, a loving woman, and children. He counts the blessings of leading a law-abiding life, but is "nowhere near happy," and though he tries to leave the street life behind, he still finds himself trading favors and investigating cases of arson, murder, and missing people. People who can't depend on the law to solve their problems seek out Easy.

Critic Reviews

"Mosley's sense of time and place are near-perfect, as usual and M.E. Willis' first-person narration nicely conveys our streetwise and world-weary hero. Highly recommended." (Library Journal)

Before LIttle Scarlet and Cinnamon Kiss

This is a great collection of EZ short stories by Walter Mosley. They come between A Little Yellow Dog and Little Scarlet, and fill in a lot of the gaps between those two novels. Really enjoyable. ME Willis is a delight. Characters like Mama Joe, bring added depth. Gone Fishing was written before these stories, and there's references to what happened.

If you want a novel, then you won't be satisfied with short stories, but I really enjoyed seeing how Mosley works with the short story form and also the way the stories link together.

Not a fan of ME Willis

Would you consider the audio edition of Six Easy Pieces to be better than the print version?


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The story line did but the narrator did not give the same effect as Michael Boatman.

What aspect of M.E. Willis’s performance would you have changed?

I would have kept Michael Boatman for the Easy Rawlins stories

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Because of the story line, yes
