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.
