About this title

Synopsis:

This is the true story of the pimp. The story of the smells, the sounds, the fears and the petty triumphs of his world. Told without moralising and with no pretence of bitterness, Iceberg Slim relates his twenty-five years in the Game, from the building up of stables to losing himself on scag. It was a life of ups and downs, and to succeed you had to be utterly ruthless. Few survived - Iceberg did. Nobody but a pimp could tell this story and no-one ever has - until Iceberg Slim.

About the Author:

Born Robert Beck in 1918, Iceberg Slim was Southside Chicago's biggest pimp in a career that spanned three decades. After several lengthy stretches in jail, he moved to Los Angeles to straighten out and there he began a writing career that was to gain him even wider fame. He died in 1992.
