Notă biografică

Roberk Beck, who used the moniker Iceberg Slim, was a major league pimp who enjoyed serious sucess during the 40s and 50s. He decided to leave the pimping game having served his third and final stretch in jail. He moved to Los Angeles where he straightened out and began a career as a writer. Pimp was originally published in 1967.


* 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 * 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 brutally honest 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 20090302
