Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Mama Black Widow" is the nickname of Otis Tilson, a comely and tragic black queen adrift with his brothers and sisters in the dark ghetto world of pimpdom and violent crime. His story is told in the gut-level language of the homosexual underworld-an unforgettable testament of life lived on the margins of a racist and predatory urban hell.

Synopsis:

"One of the most exciting literary revival series since the rediscovery of Jim Thompson's novels" (), Old School Books "is subtly transforming the landscape of post-war black fiction" ().

About the Author
