DAYS WITHOUT WEATHER (1983)
by Cecil Brown
Cecil Brown's novel, Days Without Weather, portrays the experiences of black comedians, writers, actors, and singers in the cutthroat world of Hollywood - an irresistible phantasmagoria whose characters argue, fight, lie, love, and struggle to get ahead at all costs.
"Cecil Brown has written a moving and terrifying allegory concerning the various prices of art, love , and life: and, most specifically, the black American's struggle not to be an accomplice to his own destruction." - James Baldwin
"There is nothing corrupt about his pride. I have never met a writer who loved his work as much as Cecil Brown. The humor, the warmth, and even the smell are beautiful. The gentleness with which he handles the memories of his characters is great. I have had many Days Without Weather too." - Richard Pryor
