Product Description

Review

* Slim belongs to the knuckle-duster-in-the-face school of storytelling. Sunday Times * Slim always told it as it was, without compromise. -- Irvine Welsh * Pimp is hot and frantic, a remarkable tour de force of carnality and violence. The Times * Iceberg Slim does for the pimp what Jean Genet did for the thief. Washington Post * Pimp is an eye-boggling netherworld documentary, a tear-arse tale of ferocious emotion, expressed through action. Q magazine * Iceberg Slim always kept it real. It is blatant, uncompromising, and as close to the truth as you can get without going there yourself. -- Ice T * This brutally honest memoir...is as shocking today as ever. A precursor of 40 years of black-street culture, this is uncompromising and harrowing, but a landmark book nonetheless. Big Issue 20090302
