Bigger Thomas invaded my dreams last night and slapped me upside the head. I never liked Bigger. Told him so. I mean, to be ignorant and poor is one thing, but when did they become an excuse for criminality? Something about Bigger didn't sit right with me. Killing the heiress was one thing, an accident I'm sure, but killing his girlfriend was premeditated and cruel. I had no sympathy for Bigger. I always preferred Ellison's Invisible Man.

"When's the last time you did anything worth writing about boy?" he asked. He grinned at me stupidly.

I pretended not to hear.
