About the book

Socrates Fortlow, first introduced in Always Outnumbered, Always Outgunned, is one of the essential fictional characters of our times.

In Walkin' the Dog, the philosopher with 'rock-breaking hands' has come in from the cold and, once again, has to decide the point at which an individual must make a stand against the brutaliy and corruption that surrounds him.

Nine years after his release from prison, Socrates is still living in a two-room shack in Watts, but now with a lover and a steady job. Having responsibilities and people he cares about makes acting morally even harder - he has so much more to lose with the police watching his every move.

At a time when much contemporary fiction confines itself to the personal, Walter Mosley creates characters that speak to the universal and reflect on dilemmas that, whether we like it or not, are the moral questions of our time.
