[With Cash Money Content re-releasing late author Iceberg Slim's Long White Con, the celebrated writer's daughter Misty Beck gives you her Top 5 reasons this book is a must-have.]
1. Slim Thuggin'
One reason to buy Long White Con is because it's a follow-up to Trick Baby. Once again you will get an up close look into an underworld many can't imagine exists. Slim takes you to the darkest gutter of the con game. You will meet a more seasoned Con in the character "White Folks" he is older and wiser and there is some wicked humor to add to the sometimes shocking and explicit dialogue written in Slim's unique style.
2. Black & White
Reason number two you should get this great piece of literature is the fact that Slim's whole catalog is a chance to experience a world that he expressed down to the nitty gritty. To read one of Slim's books is to become and feel each character depicted. In Long White Con you will learn the game through White Folks exploits.
3. Wonder Years
The book is written with knowledge Slim acquired through his own journey living "the life" and you will not be disappointed if you like a story told with depth and realism. Slim never fails to entertain the reader. Long White Con proves this again.
4. Check My Catalogue
You can't have just one spoon of ice cream and you can't read just one Iceberg Slim novel. Get this book to add to your library of other Slim novels. If you haven't read Slims books before get to it. I suggest you start with Pimp the story of his life and then Trick Baby. By then you should be hooked and Long White Con will allow you to segue onto other Slim novels effortlessly.
Last but not least get a copy of Long White Con because its good. There aren't too many authors that can take you to the places they are writing about. Or feel the pain that the character feels. Don't pass on Slim. You will be pleased...just like the others another great read.
