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)

"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 2009-03-02)

"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 text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
