Synopsis

In The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim, the fierce and lyrical icon for criminal reformation describes himself as illfrom Americas fake faade of justice and democracy. For Iceberg Slim, the illness may have been a detriment, but for us its a gift. His tales serve as a chilling reminder that we are all inmates of one prison or another, and the time to break free has arrived. Iceberg Slims story is now depicted in a major motion picture, Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp, which shows his transformation from pimp to the author of seven classic books. Offering brutal, difficult-to-swallow tales from the underground, this book exposes the authors inner workings in a way none of his others have, resulting in a straight-out, heartfelt confession. As if Iceberg Slims charismatic words werent enough to evoke the essence of this time in his lifethe LA underground of the 1960seach character carries their own baggage, struggles, and influence on Slims vision of the world.
