Trick Baby

Trick Baby - Iceberg Slim Not as good as Pimp, but still thoroughly entertaining. Two of my three stars are just for the character names. In addition to the mixed-race main character White Folks and his mentor/partner in the con game Blue Howard, there's Dot Murray, Memphis Kid and St. Louis Shorty, Livin' Swell, Vicksburg Kid, One Pocket, Dirty Red, Precious Jimmy, Old Man Mule, Butcher Knife Brown, and Buster Bang Bang.
