The Vulture

Now back in print, The Vulture is the first novel by the legendary poet, musician, and so-called "godfather of rap” Gil Scott-Heron, written while he was still a university student.

First published in 1970 and digging the rhythms of the street, where the biggest deal life has to offer is getting high, The Vulture is a hip and fast-moving thriller, set in lower Manhattan. It relates the strange story of the murder of a teenage boy called John Lee-telling it in the words of four men who knew him when he was just another kid working after school, hanging out, waiting for something to happen. Just who did kill John Lee and why?

Rezension
“For more than two decades, [Gil Scott-Heron] has been committed to examining those facts of the human condition that most of us would rather forget.” —The Washington Post
 
“Drenched with the dark overtones of America’s underworld, battered by the storms of politics and race. They are as sexy as they are psychotic.” —City Life, on the novels of Gil Scott-Heron
 
“They are impressive and ambitious works that vigorously mix street savvy and intellectual flair.” —GQ, on the novels of Gil Scott-Heron
Portrait
