Gentleman of Leisure
A Year in the Life of A PimpBook - 2006
A facsimile edition of the first 1972 edition that followed Silky, a pimp, and his women through an entire year of life on the streets of New York City. Bob Adelman dives headlong onto the world of the original Macks and players - the Big City Pimps - in this in-depth photographic exploration of the underworld figures that populated the streets of New York City. Armed with only a camera Adelman entered the lives of Silky and his women. This facsimile edition re-introduces this classic of the times and makes available, once more, this compelling and hugely popular book.
