Book description

Sleepy Willie sings the Blues, is the second in a series of books written by Horace Mungin. Reminiscence of Langston Hughes' collection of "Jesse B. Simple" books, Sleepy Willie is an old Southern born, grass roots philosopher living in the South Bronx. Willie takes a pundit's-eye view of the interactions of African American and whites in today's society. But it doesn't stop there. Willie burns the feathers of those in the current political and gangster culture. Willie expounds on his international views. Willie finds socially redeeming qualities in the Jerry Springer show. Willie's narratives are replete with whimsical flare and eccentric spins that go so far out there that you'll be amazed when they conclude within the realm of reasonableness. This is one funny, insightful, and thought-provoking book, that will take you through the hoops with laughs, sighs, and a melancholy longing, then set you straight.

Author Biography: Horace Mungin was born in South Carolina and raised in New York City. He currently lives in Ridgeville, S.C. Horace began writing during the 60's Black Arts movement. He has published two volumes of poetry and a book of Sleepy Willie sketches. His work has appeared in anthologies, magazines, and newspapers. Sleepy Willie appeared in 1978 in a syndicated column written by the author. A collection of those columns entitled "Sleepy Willie Talks about Life" was published in 1991. About that book Amiri Baraka wrote. " —Irony is the weapon of the powerless, and as they say in the joint, Willie (and Author Mungin, who's been around for a while, since the time of the smell of the 60's Black Arts movement) is laying on symbol, very heavy, but with a light andamusing touch." Sleepy Willie Sings the Blues goes beyond symbols to hit the mark.
