Street Lit...Sex, Drugs, and Life On the Streets - For Mature Audiences Only

“Called street literature, urban drama, and hip-hop literature, this exciting genre features fast-paced action, gritty ghetto realism, and social messages about the high price of gangsta life. Following in the tradition of Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines, the new generation of street lit writers speaks to the experiences of a wide range of characters - from the ordinary people trying to get by in the projects to hard-core drug dealers, prostitutes, pimps, and gangbangers.”
(from Madison Public Library, Madison , WI)
