Pimp: The Story Of My Life Zusammenfassung

Pimp: The Story Of My Life Iceberg Slim

The ultimate anti-hero, Iceberg Slim, takes you into the secret inner world of the pimp, and the smells, sounds, fears and petty triumphs of his world. A legendary figure of the Chicago underworld, this is his story: from defending his mother against the evil men she brought into their lives to becoming a giant of the streets. A seething tale of brutality, cunning and greed, Pimp is a harrowing portrait of life on the wrong side of the tracks, and a rich warning from a true survivor.

Pimp: The Story Of My Life Bewertungen

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 * *
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
