A Long Stretch of Blue
By Denis Gray
Arfel Booker is a great young blues musician in the 1940s South. One night, after playing a blues gig in a new town, a beautiful woman takes him back to her log cabin to make love. In the morning (after blacking out from too much liquor), he awakens to an unwelcome surprise. Instead of the woman, an unfamiliar white man is in the bed, and the man’s throat has been slashed with Arfel’s knife.
Arfel knows he’s been framed, and he makes a run for it and heads north by hopping trains. Once in a safe distance from the southern town, Arfel makes the acquaintance of Lemontree Johnson, a fellow blues man who helps to reestablish Arfel’s music and him. Despite this spot of good luck, Arfel’s troubles are far from over.
Lemontree is the only person who knows the truth about Arfel’s run from the south and his current state as suspected murderer. All seems lost when a bounty hunter arrives looking for Arfel. Who is the strange murdered white man and how will Arfel Booker escape the long arm of the law this time?$2.99–$15.00

An exceptional story that cuts through the bare denuded trunk of humanity and let the pus of inhumanity, barbarism and sadism ooze out. The novel expounds humanity in a completely newfangled sense, absolutely different from all known dimensions. It unearths all the abstruse desires on humans that may or may not have been spewed out by them. The work ferociously abrades each and every layer of the society, brutality unmasks its true evil face and reveals the ever cryptic and wholly self-centered yearnings that together fabricate the fundamentals of a human (at least biologically). The novel also examines the ancient cultural heritage of India on the broad parameters of utility, value and need and, at times amiably but mostly savagely, butchers the social conventions based on the sham grounds of gender, caste, religion and economic status. This entirely merciless work ruthlessly marches into the socio-economic and politico-cultural domains of the so-called human society, assesses the efficacy and utility of ancient and neo traditions of India and accurately determines the factors required in the bare struggle for survival. The Sinner effectually deals with the entirely antagonistic dimensions of life and lifelessness and also the at times complementary but mostly contradictory timespan between them.
This work is a must read by all those who value humanity, respect women, believe in dynamism and change and are courageous enough to beard the Evils of the society, economy, polity and morality and have the mettle to welcome Good. This novel is not an endeavor for a kingly life but a headlong struggle for survival. Reading this novel may altogether after your conviction of being a human and you’re sure to involuntarily raise a question that the novel also evokes at its concluding juncture.$26.00
