Read from September 06 to 30, 2010

This 1961 collection, about jazz, New York, the South, rent parties, racial prejudice, drug abuse, homicide and love, is one of Ellison's early "deadly streets"-themed books, with no SF or fantasy elements at all. Despite some dated elements (such as the subtitle), these 22 stories are mostly still effective.
