The Ballad of Black Tom - Victor LaValle

This book's been on my radar as a must read, and it keeps getting more so.

 

What also adds in to all of this for me is I have a side project (hopefully eventually a conference paper) on transcending Lovecraft/the Cthulhu mythos as a cultural toolbox that goes beyond Lovecraft's limitations.  LaValle has a lot to say that REALLY ties in to this project (here and in other interviews)
