Synopsis

From one of the most revolutionary writers of the twentieth century comes the uncensored and gritty novel that inspired todays 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 wouldnt have changed it. Whoreson Jones is the son of a beautiful black prostitute and an unknown white john. As a child, hes looked after by his neighborhoods 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, Whoresons 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 mothers words: First be a man, then be a pimp.
