It is not often that Walter Mosley (right) poses without his hat. He probably never met English writer Jonathan Raban (up) who always wears a hat. Raban told me once, "The quickest remedy for a bald head is a hat." What struck me the most about Walter Mosley was his late-night/FM-Radio voice and his beautiful diction. He told me that even if all I did was change a coma on anything that I was writing, during a day, that was writing. "The next day comes, and the words are waiting."
