Shreveport, LA (PRWEB) July 08, 2011
Author Muscles (pen name) is delighted to announce the release of his very first book. A powerful memoir called Detroit Rich Boys. Muscles, a former street hustler, drug user, and gang member, tells his griping street tale about gang violence on the west side of Detroit. Many urban and middle class kids in his story were victims of bad choices. It's a must read about gangs and education in one of the most volatile schools in Detroit. The book was published by iuniverse and is available at Barnesandnoble.com and every Major online retailer, including over 5000 independent book sellers. Detroit Rich Boys by Muscles is on Facebook and also available at Payroll Publishing in Northland Mall Detroit Michigan, the Shrine of Madonna Detroit Michigan and the Nubian Culture outreach center in Shreveport, LA.
Detroit Rich Boys doesn't just tell the tale of youths in a poor ghetto environment, it tells the tale of troubled youths in the upper middle class too. The two different living standards were only blocks away in this unique memoir about gang violence.
"Once upon a time, Detroit was the promise land for black people in America. By the 1980s, it had become a land of bondage, where people were enslaved to drugs, poverty, and violence. From the Lunatic Assassins and the 8 mile Sconies, to the 7 mile BKs, and the PAs. the streets of the West side are all here," said Al Profit Detroit film director.
About the Author: Muscles was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, where he was part of one of the most notorious neighborhood gangs in the state. He also attended Mumford High school. Having left the gang lifestyle at twenty-seven, he moved to Louisiana, where he still lives today.
