In this autobiographical account, Adam Gussow--a white literature student and blues harmonica player--reflects on his discovery of blues music and his experience playing and touring with blues guitarist Sterling Magee, or "Mister Satan." In the 1980s, "Adam and Satan" played blues in the streets of Harlem, New York during a time of increasing racial conflict. The two would eventually travel around the U.S. and Europe, even making an appearance in the 1988 documentary film "Rattle and Hum", starring U2.


Washington Post Book World
"...beneath the effusive and effervescent tone of "Mister Satan's Apprentice" lie gnawing questions of race and identity, of cultural imperialism and human connection. And precisely because Gussow stays close to his story, with all its eccentricity and youthful abandon, he arrives at a kind of profundity that eludes many more serious scholars and commentators." - Samuel G. Freedman 11/22/1998
