Street Poison: The Biography of Iceberg Slim
Street Poison: The Biography of Iceberg Slim
by Justin Gifford
Staff Pick
Street Poison is an illuminating portrait of the flawed and fascinating life of Iceberg Slim. Though not well known in literary circles, his books have had a profound effect on music, film, and inner-city culture.

Mess: One Man's Struggle to Clean Up His House and His Act
Mess: One Man's Struggle to Clean Up His House and His Act
by Barry Yourgrau
Staff Pick
Barry Yourgrau's apartment was filled with sentimental keepsakes from traveling and from his family. True to his style, he began researching clutter, doing interviews, and going to group meetings, but not actually removing anything from his apartment. Eventually he began to work his way through the boxes of his father's books stacked underneath the piano, and fresh insights arose. A fascinating look into Yourgrau's psyche and others like him, Mess is both amusing and informative.
