EPISODE FOUR: FOH [Fiction Outta the Hood]
In this week's episode we tackle the genre of urban fiction aka hood lit. From the origins of Iceberg Slim novels to its stronghold on the Amazon Top 100 African American fiction list, we discuss our gripes with it as well as its...unique traits. We also spend a bit of time reminiscing for authors of days of yore, specifically Trisha R. Thomas, Sheneska Jackson and Lolita Files and we finally get to the root of Jeanette's Zane issues.
