One of the first novels from one of the most revolutionary writers of the 20th century, the uncensored and gritty book that inspired today’s street lit and hip hop culture.
Donald Goines takes the reader into the violent world of ghetto prostitution. Whoreson Jones, the novel’s hero, is the son of a beautiful black prosititute and an unknown white john. By the age of sixteen, he is a fully- fledged pimp, cold blooded, ruthless. Written in gritty street talk, Whoreson’s story affords a startling glimpse into the hell of the inner city, yet brisrles with bitter humor and defiant pride.
