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

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

The brothers threshed about the floor, grunting like two hungry cannibals fighting over the missing ribs. Finally Goldy got his foot in Jackson’s belly and gave a shove, separating them.
