Publisher Description

The most gritty and real illustration of the black ghetto ever told, from the only man capable of telling it, Iceberg Slim, bestselling author of Pimp.

Mama Black Widow tells the tragic story of Otis Tilson, a stunning black drag queen trapped in a cruel queer ghetto underworld. In hopes of escaping the racial bigotry and economic injustice of the South, Otis’ family journeys north from their plantation to an urban promised land. Once in Chicago Otis and his brother and sisters become prisoners to a wasteland of violence, crime, prostitution and rape. This is the gut-wrenching tale of the destruction of a family and the truest portrayal of homosexuality in the ghetto ever told.

Phenomenal read.

Wow

This novel was so raw and gritty. But a great novel. I really felt for Tilly and all that he went through.

Wow...

To write a novel during major life events such as wars and depressions and capture the essence of your character with truly amazing literature is nothing short of amazing. Iceberg was truly the Tupac of literature. He was and always will be the most profound, unedited, urban author of the 20th century. Thanks
