Merge / Disciple: Two Short Novels from Crosstown to Oblivion

Possibilities. The short novels that Walter Mosley writes in his Crosstown to Oblivion series are finely written and quick to read. The latest, Merge/Disciple, includes two novellas that are paired as perfectly as when a wine complements a tasty plate of food. Mosley riffs on an expanded reality and what may be possible. In Merge, a lottery winner uncovers a richer treasure than his winnings. In Disciple, the protagonist finds himself promoted from being a data entry clerk to the head of a company. However unlikely the plot, readers are likely to enjoy the tightly written prose and the big questions underlying the stories. Mosley is a fine writer and readers who like to think about life and its possibilities are those most likely to enjoy these two short novels.
