Really the Blues by Mezz Mezzrow

I enjoyed it 50 years ago and now do so again. Creates a vivid picture of the world he lived in.

I first read this when it was published in the 1950s and was delighted to find that I still remembered and savoured the opening chapter almost word for word. The condition of the book was just as described by the vendor so I shall not be frightened to buy 2nd hand books from Amazon when necessary in future.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 22 Jan 2012
An enjoyable feature of the books is the use of words authentic to the age and subjects involved but in many cases strange to us today. I bought the book hoping to find a handy source of definitions but discovered that far too many of the strange words are not dealt with.
I would not recommend this to another O'Brian fan.
