About this title:

Synopsis: [LIBRARY EDITION Audiobook CD format in sturdy Vinyl Case with cloth sleeves that keep compact discs protected.]

[Read by Kevin Kenerly]

From one of the most revolutionary writers of the twentieth century comes the uncensored and gritty novel that inspired today's street lit and hip-hop culture.

''After my ninth birthday, I began to really understand the meaning of my name. I began to understand just what my mother was doing for a living. There was nothing I could do about it, but even had I been able to, I wouldn't have changed it.''

Whoreson Jones is the son of a beautiful black prostitute and an unknown white john. As a child, he's looked after by his neighborhood's imposing matriarch, Big Mama, while his mother works. At age twelve, his street education begins when a man named Fast Black schools him in trickology. By thirteen, Whoreson's a cardsharp. By sixteen, his childhood abruptly ends, and he is a full-fledged pimp, cold-blooded and ruthless, battling to understand and live up to his mother's words: ''First be a man, then be a pimp.''

About the Author: DONALD GOINES (1936-1974), novelist, was born in Detroit, Michigan. His family owned a laundry business. He joined the U.S. Air Force instead of going into the family business. Following his service in the army, he entered into a lifestyle of drug addiction and crime. He received seven prison sentences, serving a total of over six years. He took up writing during one of his seven prison sentences. Between 1969 and 1974, he published sixteen novels (including a series about a character named Kenyatta, written under the pseudonym Al C. Clark) which are now recognized as almost unbearably authentic portraits of the roughest aspects of the black experience. Rappers such as Tupac Shakur have been inspired by Goines' books. Goines was shot to death in 1974.
