Happy Birthday, Chester Himes!


Beth Foxwell has the info and some links. I remember discovering the Avon editions of Himes's novels about Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson around 40 years ago. Some of the scenes are still vivid in my mind. Great stuff, indeed.

The covers for those Avon editions are all pretty nice.
