He moved to Los Angeles where he straightened out and began a career as a writer. Pimp was originally published in 1967.

Reviews

Slim belongs to the knuckle-duster-in-the-face school of storytelling * * Sunday Times * *
Slim always told it as it was, without compromise -- IRVINE WELSH
Pimp is hot and frantic, a remarkable tour de force of carnality and violence * * The Times * *
This brutally honest memoir . . . is as shocking today as ever. A precursor of forty years of black-street culture, this is uncompromising and harrowing, but a landmark book nonetheless * * Big Issue * *
Iceberg Slim does for the pimp what Jean Genet did for the thief * * Washington Post * *
Pimp is an eye-boggling netherworld documentary, a tear-arse tale of ferocious emotion, expressed through action * * Q magazine * *
Iceberg Slim always kept it real. It is blatant, uncompromising, and as close to the truth as you can get without going there yourself -- Ice-T
