Yesterday I downloaded The Vulture and The Nigger Factory onto my Kindle, and I'll read these two novels over the next couple of weeks.
Here are links to a few obituaries of and tributes to GSH:
Gil Scott-Heron, Voice of Black Culture, Dies at 62 (New York Times)
Gil Scott-Heron obituary (Guardian)
Gil Scott-Heron's Scornful Brilliance (The New Yorker)
Founding Father Of Rap, Gil Scott-Heron, Dead (NPR)
I learned of his passing from my wife, who woke me up at 5 AM to tell me, and I've been listening to his stuff for most of the weekend. One of the links I posted was to his song "Re-Ron," which spoke out against Reagan's reelection in 1984, and that song is damned hard to find these days.
