Chester Himes
If there was a single party we could go to in history, it would be the one in Paris in 1956 where Chester Himes argues with James Baldwin about Camus and Richard Wright interrupts them to introduce Simone de Beauvoir, who, as it happens, is a big fan of Monsieur Himes first novel, If He Hollers, Let Him Go. That sounds like a cool party.
