Pimp: The Story Of My Life

The Story of My Life. With an introduction by Irvine Welsh

'Slim always told it as it was, without compromise.'
Irvine Welsh

The ultimate anti-hero, Iceberg Slim takes you into the secret inner world of the pimp, and the smells, sounds, fears and petty triumphs of his world. A legendary figure of the Chicago underworld, this is his riveting story:
from defending his mother against the evil men she brought into their lives to becoming a kingpin of the streets. A seething tale of brutality, cunning and greed, Pimp is a harrowing portrait of life on the wrong side of the tracks, and a rich warning from a true survivor.

'Slim belongs to the knuckle-duster-in-the-face school of storytelling.'
Sunday 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. Pimp is blatant, uncompromising and as close to the truth as you can get without going there yourself.'
Ice T
