Læs historien om Dylan og Mingus. Vi følger den hvide Dylans venskab med Mingus gennem 70ernes, 80ernes og 90ernes New York. En barsk historie om venskab, racisme og skæve familiehistorier. Svær at læse men giv den en chance og bliv fanget ind i dette specielle miljø.

Uha, den kommer jeg aldrig igennem. Måtte give op efter 40 sider pga. sproget. Hvor var den dog irriterende at læse.
