the last book I ever read A Rage in Harlem: A Harlem Detectives Novel by Chester Himes, excerpt three)

from A Rage in Harlem (Harlem Detectives Series Book 1) by Chester Himes:

Goldy lived with two other men on the Golden Ridge of Convent Avenue, north of City College and 140th Street. They had the ground floor of a brownstone private house that had been cut up into apartments.

All three impersonated females and lived by their wits. All were fat and black, which made it easy.
