The Tenants Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


The last remaining tenant in a condemned New York tenement, Harry Lesser struggles against rising panic and escalating odds to complete the novel he started ten years earlier.

Then he stumbles on a black man, sitting typing in one of the deserted flats: Willie Spearmint, soul writer.

Touchy, hostile and anti-semitic, demanding then denouncing Lesser's critical help with his floridly violent tales of oppression, Spearmint is exactly what Lesser doesn't need - or does he?
