Painting images of his youth and adulthood, Alfonso reveals to us his life in Newark, New Jersey. As one of the first African Americans in his elementary class, Alfonzo, and his writing, bridges the gap between race and the simple fact that we are indeed a single human species.The Pimp takes shape in many formats.

While we can easily describe this is as poetry, fiction, a one act play, and several abstract drawings, it is better to break down these masterpieces as parts of a wondrous and enlightening whole. Through his poetry, Alfonz communicates timeless ideas, often in the frame of a single location, time period, or idea. As the reader, were forced to relate, whether we can identify with racial and class issues present in the social struggles he faced.

Alfonz offers a voice, one of very few, to a generation of African Americans that are often left on the sidelines of major literature and poetic discussion. Where academia often fails to incorporate the culture of Alfonzs times (at least in a non-deluded way), were left with the public offerings of such eye-witnesses as our author.

After many years in obscurity, were finally seeing the widening gap between cultures being closed. With an astute sense of English and the well-handled ambiguity of poetic forms, Alfonz breaks barriers while not forgetting to entertain the reader.Herein lies the text and life of an intellectual that isnt afraid of living, breathing, and creating in varied forms outside of our modern consumer culture. It is with a great amount of integrity that these works speak to generations old and new, and with that integrity we see honesty without fear of political correctness.

This honesty is what keeps this work relevant regardless of the times.To loosely quote Alfonzos preface, What the hell is the use of writing something in some predetermined meter or form and not saying things of value? ... [This book] is a synthesis of traditional and modern Black art. A combination of rhyme and non-rhyme, of prose and poetry, of form and formlessness, of agony and ecstasy. This work is the act of seduction.
