Pimp My Book

Now this is something I'd like to see on the shelves of the local interest section over at The Book House: A Man Named Nebraska: A Life Lived in Poverty, Pimping and Politics. That's the book being shopped around by Nebraska Brace, legendary Albany character and newly minted memoirist. Brace, whose resume includes a stint as Third Ward Alderman from Arbor Hill, movie actor, and pimp, reportedly enlisted a professional writer to help him pull it all together. Hmmm... William Kennedy? Trevanian? Paul Grondahl, who wrote about Brace in yesterday's TU? We'll have to wait and see.
Meanwhile, Nebraska's working for some folks who know a thing or two about pimping: he mans the door as a greeter at Sam's Club. Imagine the confusion when someone shows up at the store looking for a hoe.
