Kurzbeschreibung

August 2014
"Trick Baby" charts the rise of White Folks, a white Negro who uses his colour as a trump card in the tough game of the Con. Blue-eyed, light-haired and white-skinned, White Folks is the most incredible con man the ghetto ever spawned, a hustler in the jungle of Southside Chicago where only the sharpest survive. With his partner Blue, an old hand who teaches him the tricks of the trade, White Folks rises to the top of his profession. The cons he pulls off get more and more lucrative and dangerous until one day they go too far...

Pressestimmen

* One of the most honest and original writers to emerge from the last century, Slim fully earns his place in the canon of America's greatest. -- Helen Walsh * Trick Baby is an American classic. Publishing News * Slim always told it as it was, without compromise. -- Irvine Welsh * His prose is almost Shakespearean in its inventiveness and his dialogue hums with ghetto jive. Scotsman * Slim belongs to the knuckle-duster-in-the-face school of storytelling. Sunday Times * Iceberg Slim always kept it real. So he will always be relevant. -- Ice T -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

4.0 von 5 Sternen Iceberg Slim's Trick Baby is worth consideration 20. Oktober 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
Telling the life story of White Folks, a black con-artist whose pale skin allows him to pass himself off as a white man, this book is not quite up to the standard of Iceberg's first book 'Pimp'. The book recounts White Folks' tragic early life, rejected by children his own age as being a 'Trick Baby', the illegitimate offspring conceived between a hooker and her trick. The main thrust of the story is the play off between White Folks and his older, blacker mentor who teaches him the con game. As with all his books, Iceberg writes in the style and language of the life he actually lead. There is nothing false or trite about this book. The reader gets a true insite into a world that most of us will never have to experience. Its a true cult classic. Often tragically funny, this is one not to be missed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Trick Baby 2. Januar 2001
Von Gia C. Stith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
In this story we get to see Johnny O'Brien grow up to a teen with his black mother named Phala. His father is white and was not around to raise him. Johnny looks white but is raised in a ghetto type neighborhood. When he is a teen his mother is gang raped and put into a mental institute. This is where the story really begins, when Johnny meets a guy street named "Blue" because of his dark skin. He takes Johnny under his wing as a partner in the con game and teaches it to Johnny. Blue street names Johnny "White Folks". Blue's whole life is "Con" and he believes that with a black partner who looks white he will be able to run the con on a larger group of people. Which turns out to be true, I had a good time reading about the different ways that they conned people and all their trials along the way. The book is comical in some parts. Blue really takes on a fatherly role for "White Folks" as his relationship with his lesbian daughter is not as close as he would like. I liked being taken to a whole different world while reading this book. Late 50's early 60's. The way they talked the slang and the price's of things - I really loved this book. White Folks and Blue go through a lot of drama - that they bring on themselves. I do recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading the sequel "Long White Con"

4.0 von 5 Sternen excellent read 14. August 2005
Von S. Stevens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I loved reading Trick Baby. I read it within 24 hours, so whoever said it is slow I would have to disagree with. But let me warn you, it was a very, very depressing story. Do not buy this book unless you are prepared to have your heart ripped out! I won't give you a plot summary, but this is a story that deals with issues of love, lonliness and deciet. There are two types of people in the world: those who con and those who get conned. Overall, the book is bleak (antithesis of heart-warming) but very enlightening and entertaining. I would profoundly affected. Highly recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Reading for the Less Informed 12. März 2002
Von kimberly rodgers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
...Equipped with a slang term dictionary, this book has me spoiled.
It was good to take a break from the... "Sister-Sister-Fan-Me-At-The-Mall-Dissappearing-Blues-Aint-Like-Mine-Acts" sagas...
Truly poetry in motion as Ice Berg took me through the slums and gutter of the con game.
I truly fell in love with all "Trick Baby" characters as I learned more and more about concentrated 'White is Right' and Blue-Black phrases with no in betweens, amazingly how it applies to my world today, and frankly how somethings never changes.
This book is humorous and truly a gem. When it came to a close, I couldn't put it down, in awe that it was over, fiending for the next Robert Beck novel. So sorry I'd waited so long to get access to the spoken word of Iceberg.
