REVIEW The Conjure-Man Dies: A Mystery Tale of Dark Harlem

REVIEW The Conjure-Man Dies: A Mystery Tale of Dark Harlem î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Mystery helped and hindered by Bubber Brown and Jinx Jenkins local boys keen to clear themselves of suspicion of murder and undertake their own investigationsThe Conjure Man Dies was the very first detective novel written by an African American A distinguished doctor and accomplished musician and dramatist Rudolph Fisher was one of the principal writers of the Harlem Renaissance but died in 1934 aged only 37 W. Despite there being a police detective investigating the case I felt that the real protagonist of this novel was Dr John Archer before I knew that author Rudolph Fisher was a physician I thought that Dr Archer was the best developed and most sympathetic character Rudolph Fisher s background also explains why the medical details seemed so authenticThe Conjure Man Frimbo was a highly ambivalent character This ambivalence caused me to wonder if his background was falsified Was he really an African king or a graduate of Harvard University We only have Frimbo s word for it The mystery is cleverly constructed with a number of a plot twists that are surprising The most surprising development had me exclaiming What just happened here It caused me to entertain the notion that Frimbo could have been a genuine practitioner Some of the stories told about him sounded like he had real powers of sorcery but he behaved too much like an illusionist for me to surrender my doubts about him In the end I disliked his arrogance and tendency toward duplicityThe Conjure Man Dies has been criticized for its Amos and Andy type of dialogue that seems so dated today I confess that I wasn t enad with that dialogue either It made most of the characters seem like caricatures So there were aspects of the book that I liked and it certainly held my interest Yet my feelings about Frimbo and the dialogue lowered it in my estimationFor the blog version of this review see

A lost gem It s commonplace to say There is no Chester Himes or Walter Mosley without Fisher s novel but I d also suggest that there might not be Ralph Ellison s Invisible Man That is within the conventions of a detective novel Fisher offers a delightfully ironic complicated and ambiguous Harlem populated by surreal figures and ripe with several different languages competing against each other I can t praise this novel enough Should be on the reading list of every reader interested in investigating the Harlem Renaissance
