Traduction de l'anglais (États-Unis) et postface par Michel Fabre

Marseille, 1929. Lincoln Agrippa day-by-day, alias Banjo (comme l'instrument dont il joue dans les bars), docker occasionnel, est un Noir américain en quête de plaisirs et d'aventures.

Dans cette ville légendaire pour tous les marins du monde, il déambule, en compagnie d'amis et de connaissances de passage. C'est dans les bas-fonds, les lieux clandestins,

les rades plus ou moins louches qu'ils rencontrent prostitué(e)s et maquereaux, voyous en tout style, marins en bordée... et surtout, des musiciens.

Porté par le blues survolté de Papa Charlie Jackson et son Shake that factor !, Banjo est une plongée dans le fantastique social cher à Mac Orlan, une fresque aux couleurs criardes, une série de tableaux où l. a. misère côtoie le dandysme de los angeles pègre... Un roman-opéra où les cadences du jazz se mêleraient aux airs de Carmen et de Mistinguett.
