The most powerful part of this slim volume is Mosley's exhortation to take action. I could've read the last 20 pages and been completely satisfied; the early writing was a lead-in that, while quite interesting, felt like journal entries. Mosley takes the reader through his insomnia-fueled ruminations about how to change the "go along to get along" nature of our society, and makes strong and salient points about exactly how most of us are co-opted. I'm glad he doesn't constrain himself to fiction. If he continues to speak his conscience, perhaps he'll someday match June Jordan in his fierce output of relevant essays.
