The naked soul of iceberg slim
The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim by Iceberg SlimDetailing the haunting past of Robert Beck, known to the streets as Iceberg Slim, these essays tackle the idea of hope: the possibility to veer off course in life and then to change for the better.
While bringing brutal and difficult-to-swallow tales from the underground, this book exposes the author’s inner workings unlike any of Iceberg Slim’s other works. His tough exterior evolves into a straight-out, heartfelt confession.
As if Iceberg Slim’s captivating, rough words weren’t enough to evoke the essence of this time in his life—the L.A. underground of the 1960s—each character carries their own baggage, struggle, and influence on Iceberg’s vision of the world.
These tales serve as a chilling reminder that we are all still inmates of one prison or another, and the time to break free has arrived.

The Naked Soul of Iceberg Slim. Iceberg Slim. But I am not as ill as I was, and I am getting better all the time. His first novel, Pimp, was a frank and at times brutal portrayal of his own life in which he gave graphic insights into his twenty year reign as one of Chicago's most successful and streetwise pimps. All his subsequent books bar this took the form of fiction but maintained his vivid and uncompromising take on the urban underworld.
