In the wake of the Watts rioting, Los Angeles’ own Holloway House Publishing Company sought out writers from the Watts Writers Workshop and in 1967, the world was introduced to the work of Iceberg Slim (Robert Beck) and Donald Goines, whose stories were shocking, violent and ultimately heartbreaking.

The books were enormously popular and revealed once again that books bring us to understand so deeply things that were once hidden from us.
These are the last of the original Holloway House printings, purchased from the downtown warehouse many many years ago. $12 each @ Sideshow Books
