Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In his five-year literary career, Donald Goines provided perhaps the most sustained, multifaceted, realistic fiction picture ever created by one author of the lives, choices, and frustrations of underworld ghetto blacks. Almost single-handedly, Goines established the conventions and the popular momentum for a new fictional genre, which could be called ghetto realism.” Professor Greg Goode, University of Rochester

Story

Painful emotions celebrated

Knowing that Donald Goines lived most of his life as a career criminal, a large majority of that time in prison, it is remarkable that he was able to muster up the energy and courage to relive much of the pain in his own life through his books. In this one, he relates the struggle and tragedy of a your black girl of the streets, suffocating under the pressures of drugs, prostitution, starvations et al. with the alacrity and emotional expertness of a seasoned writer. This book has more emotion to share than most listeners will be comfortable with. So, be warned. This is truly a gut wrenching story, rendered all the more passionate by the narration of Bahni Turpin. A definite yes on this one.
