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
? 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.
