Description
Suffering from dementia and largely neglected by his extended family, 91-year-old Ptolemy Grey has little to look forward to, particularly when his great-nephew is killed in a drive-by shooting, in this novel by the author of The Right Mistake and Devil in a Blue Dress. At the funeral, Gray meets his beautiful teenaged caregiver Robyn Small, and begins to long for the mental clarity he once possessed. Then an experimental medical procedure proves capable of restoring Gray and helping him set a few things straight—if he will risk having it drastically shorten his life.

"The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey is a beautiful meditation on love, frailty and old age. Filled with Walter Mosley's signature humor and narrative mastery, it is as much a page turner as it is a heart tugger. It is a novel that stays with you long after you read the last word and immediately urges you to read it again."—Edwidge Danticat
