STRAIGHT FROM THE HORSES MOUTH: Iceberg Slim gives unprecedented insight into his incredible life as a pimp, when he played God to hundreds of women, in this collection of rare interviews.

In his forties Iceberg Slim became a legendary storyteller of another kind. As the USAs best-selling black author he was read by millions. He lectured at colleges, advising students to learn from his mistakes and lead socially constructive lives. Iceberg influenced artists such as Ice-T, Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), Bill Duke (Deep Cover) and Jay-Z. In this book Iceberg speaks unflinchingly, sharing his qualified and valuable perspective on important topics: sex, drugs, racism, crime, prison, politics, family and writing.

Inside, Icebergs fascinating life as a writer, father and husband is also revealed for the first time in exclusive frank interviews with his daughter Misty Beck, and Bentley Morriss of Holloway House Publishing in Los Angeles. These interviews are complimented by rare photos and must-read articles about Iceberg Slim. Including the real story behind a chapter of The Naked Soul, written especially for this book by acclaimed anthropologist Richard Milner (Black Players and Darwin's Universe.)

Review:

A very fine piece of work, seamlessly stitched, provocative, informative. Whitaker uses stories and interviews to give us a multi-faceted look at this cultural icon. No attempt made to create a devil or a saint. Makes a fascinating read. Sensational. --Odie Hawkins, author, Los Angeles

A very complex personality becomes more revealing in Ian Whitaker's engrossing ICEBERG SLIM: THE LOST INTERVIEWS. A must read about an era, a culture, an icon of his time. --Bentley Morriss, Holloway House Publishing, Los Angeles
