by Iceberg Slim
When it comes to "hos" and the men who run them, when it comes to intriguing and super paced rivalry between ambitious pushers and dealers who sell dreams in a blizzard of white powderl, when it comes to knowing the streets, it takes a real player and that palyer is Robert Beck. For more than two decades, Beck, writing as "Iceberg Slim" has fascinated or horrified readers of his books and stories. Beck doesn't create superflies ans superhos; he gives the reader real live people- people with hopes and fears who cough breath and bleed and who have grabbed the only ticket they can find out of misery but the ticket is often a one way trip into hell and suffering. This anthology of stories by Beck is a monument to the courage of the people of the streets. Some of them make it; most dont. Laugh along with them; cry when they cry; hurt when life turns against them.
