The Vulture

About the Book

Now back in print, The Vulture is the first novel by the legendary poet, musician, and so-called godfather of rap Gil Scott-Heron, written while he was still a university student.

It relates the strange story of the murder of a teenage boy called John Lee–telling it in the words of four men who knew him when he was just another kid working after school, hanging out, waiting for something to happen. Just who did kill John Lee and why?
