5.0 out of 5 stars Pimp; The Stor of my Life

Reading it now as a mature person who has much more understanding of the socioeconomic, psychological factors that affect the Black experience, made me look at the writing from a totally different perspective.

Reading it now as a mature person who has much more understanding of the socioeconomic, psychological factors that affect the Black experience, made me look at the writing from a totally different perspective.

The young writers really need to read Robert Beck (Iceberg Slim). He is so funny, even when he is writing about the most horrible acts. His sex descriptions are priceless. Don't miss the extra chapter at the end - about the difficulties of old pimps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistent with the original., December 22, 2012

This review is from: Long White Con: The Biggest Score of His Life (Paperback)
I bought this book to replace a 70's era copy I owned long ago. I sought to replace my entire collection. Perfunctory examination suggests that the contents are intact with very little variation from the original. Good reading for any serious student of mid 20th-Century Black urban literature.
