More information about the book

Playbill.com is reporting that the world premiere of mystery author Walter Mosley's debut play The Fall of Heaven will begin performances at Cincinnati's Playhouse on January 23rd, 2010. The production is based on Mosley's adaptation of his own novel, The Tempest Tales.

The Fall of Heaven, according to press notes, "is about Tempest Landry, a street-wise young man living in Harlem who accidentally gets shot and unexpectedly finds himself at the Pearly Gates. When Saint Peter orders him to hell, the quick-witted Tempest refuses to go, believing he was justified in his actions." The play is expected to run through February 20th.

Mosley is a prolific writer, but is probably best known for his Easy Rawlins mysteries, the first of which, Devil in a Blue Dress, won the 1991 , and was made into the 1995 film starring Denzel Washington.
