Book Description A convention-defying novel by bestselling writer Walter Mosley, John Woman recounts the transformation of an unassuming boy named Cornelius Jones into John Woman, an unusual history professorwhile a hideous crime lurks in the shadows. At twelve years old, Cornelius, the son of an Italian-American woman and an older black man from Mississippi named Herman, secretly takes over his fathers job at a silent film theater in the East Village. Five years later, as Herman lives out his last days, he shares his wisdom with Cornelius, explaining that the person who controls the narrative of history controls their own fate. After his father dies and his mother disappears, Cornelius sets about reinventing himself as Professor John Woman, a man who will spread Hermans teachings across his unorthodox southwestern university. But there are other individuals attempting to influence the narrative of John Woman. Individuals who might know about his hidden past. 9/2018
