In The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim, the fierce and lyrical icon for criminal reformation describes himself as “ill…from America’s fake façade of justice and democracy.” For Iceberg Slim, the illness may have been a detriment, but for us it’s a gift. His tales serve as a chilling reminder that we are all inmates of one prison or another, and the time to break free has arrived. Iceberg Slim’s story is now depicted in a major motion picture, Iceberg Slim: Portrait of a Pimp, which shows his transformation from pimp to the author of seven classic books.

Offering brutal, difficult-to-swallow tales from the underground, this book exposes the author’s inner workings in a way none of his others have, resulting in a straight-out, heartfelt confession.

As if Iceberg Slim’s charismatic words weren’t enough to evoke the essence of this time in his life—the LA underground of the 1960s—each character carries their own baggage, struggles, and influence on Slim’s vision of the world.

About the Author
Author Iceberg Slim

Iceberg Slim  (1918–1992), a.k.a. Robert Beck, was born in Chicago and initiated into the life of the pimp at age eighteen. He briefly attended the Tuskegee Institute but dropped out to return to the streets of the South Side, where he remained, pimping, until he was forty-two. After several stints in jail, culminating in a ten-month stay in Cook County, he decided to give up the life and turned to writing. With a family to feed, he folded his life into the pages of Pimp, which emerged as a definitive chronicle of street life. Slim was catapulted into the public eye as a new American hero, known for speaking the truth whether that truth was ugly, sexy, rude, or blunt. He published six more books based on his life and different aspects of the ghetto black, pimp community. Slim died at age seventy-three in 1992, one day before the Los Angeles riots.
