That's the same feeling the reader gets early on about Madison Smartt Bell in "Anything Goes," his 13th book of fiction. Bell has the mojo, he can flat- out play, and the tunefulness and life-knowledge and honest emotion all come ringing off the page. The question, if you've got the mojo, is what to do with it. "Willard," the con-man guitarist with the sweet touch, slides through life, picking up women and gambling debts in big piles, and doing pretty much whatever he wants.
