Read The Conjure-Man Dies: A Mystery Tale of Dark Harlem ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Æ Rudolph Fisher characters The Conjure-Man Dies: A Mystery Tale of Dark Harlem Mystery helped and hindered by Bubber Brown and Jinx Jenkins local boys keen to clear themselves of suspicion of murder and undertake their own investigationsThe Conjure Man Dies was the very first detective novel written by an African American A distinguished doctor and accomplished musician and dramatist Rudolph Fisher was one of the principal writers of the Harlem Renaissance but died in 1934 aged only 37 W. When I learned this book was originally printed in 1932 I was intrigued I did some homework on the author Rudolph Fisher and was amazed at how much he accomplished in the few short years of his life He died at the age of 37 from abdominal surgery I don t discount that this type of surgery was high risk in the 30s but would he have had a greater chance at survival if he had been a white man He certainly didn t get the accolades he deserved for his various writing talents so it s a gift to us in this century to get our hands on this reprinting As if that isn t enough to make one want to read this uncanny mystery then reading the introduction written by Stanley Ellin will push you over the edge I really like his perception of the treatment of Black Americans
