Summary:

From one of the most revolutionary writers of the twentieth century comes the uncensored and gritty novel that inspired today's street lit and hip-hop culture.

After my ninth birthday, I began to really understand the meaning of my name. I began to understand just what my mother was doing for a living. There was nothing I could do about it, but even had I been able to, I wouldn't have changed it.

Whoreson Jones is the son of a beautiful black prostitute and an unknown white john. As a child, he's looked after by his neighborhood's imposing matriarch, Big Mama, while his mother works. At age twelve, his street education begins when a man named Fast Black schools him in trickology. By thirteen, Whoreson's a cardsharp. By sixteen, his childhood abruptly ends, and he is a full-fledged pimp, cold-blooded and ruthless, battling to understand and live up to his mother's words: 'First be a man, then be a pimp.'

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    The main character gives you a front Row seat into the real world of hoes and pimps. After reading or listening to this book you have an understanding of what it’s like to leave in a world we’re men make their living off women. Although the book was very interesting and entertaining and does not leave much to the imagination it’s hard to put down. I found myself unable to put this book down because of my love hate feelings towards Horeson the main character.

    None of the modern so called urban lit authors touch Goines in terms of realness or vivid story telling. The narrator is on point, brings the book to life with voices and excellent phrasing.
