High Rider - Vance Donovan

Synopsis: Another story of a Black boy who wants to make money but doesn’t feel he has any legitimate opportunity in the white man’s world, so he turns to selling women.

Rating: Book Book Book

Notes: At its base foundation, this story is the same as Goines’ Whoreson (young man becomes a top notch pimp). But the thing I notice is that the location of the story has a lot to do with it. High Rider takes place in Hollywood, so there’s a lot more prestige and glamour. It has hardly any of the degradation and violence prevalent in Whoreson which was based in Detroit.
