5.0 von 5 Sternen Pimp Provides Valuable Advice, 5. April 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pimp (Taschenbuch)
Pimp, a non-fiction novel written by Robert Beck, recounts thetrials and tribulations of Iceberg Slim: a pimp whose ideologies andsocial strategies give insight into the often misunderstood relationships between black and white and male and female. Pimp's best feature is how Beck ingeniously interlocks social commentary into vivid storytelling. The main character, Iceberg Slim, is unapologetic when he recounts his brutality towards women and his rampant drug use. Beck's gritty portrayal of both evokes admiration and disgust of Iceberg's ability to retain and recruit prostitutes. The adventures of Iceberg Slim provides thought provoking theories about the psyche of women; do they really like to be treated like trash? He certainly thinks so, and makes a convincing arguement to back his thesis. There are some sentences in this book that makes the reader want to say aloud; THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE, WHY DIDN'T I THiNK OF THAT. By the end of the book readers respect and admire Iceberg Slim for not only how he built his pimp empire, but also how his views on relationships and race relations propelled him into his position of power. END
