I was surprised to see a white man walk into Joppy's. It's not just that he was white but he wore an off-white linen suit and shirt with a Panama straw hat and bone shoes over flashing white silk socks.
hmm....interesting. This is how I imagine a sub-par pimp from Miami to dress...he could also be a foreigner. And what's he doing at Joppy's? --I don't know. And I won't know until this weekend because I haven't officially started reading this one yet. I hear Walter Mosley is a legend, so I'm kind of excited to see what he's about.
What do we think? pimp? foreigner? other?
