Word Hustle: The Works of Donald Goins

$32.50 $26.95

Word Hustle by Dr. LaMonda H. Stallings (Editor), Greg Thomas (Editor)

Word Hustle is the first scholarly treatment of fiction writer Donald Goines, and thereby the first serious consideration of what has been termed “street literature,” “ghetto literature,” “street fiction,” or “urban fiction.” By examining Goines, one of street literature's most prolific founders, this collection seeks to begin a legitimate study of the genre and its authors. In illuminating the layers of Goines’s novels, the contributors engage topics such as Black Power politics, revolutionary violence, domesticity and fatherhood, revisions of the mulatto trope, rape and racialized sexuality, and the prison industrial complex.
