BALTIMORE (PRWEB) April 11, 2013
In his new book “American Street Mack: Based on a True Story” (published by AuthorHouse) author Shwakeem De La Soussa offers readers a memoir of his young adulthood, surviving – with methods as extreme as sex trafficking and more – as a college student across cities on the East Coast.
De La Soussa describes his book as a chronicle of hope, faith and strength. He doesn’t pull any punches, describing how he worked at anything – legal or not – that would let him make his ends meet.
An excerpt from “American Street Mack”:
“I was lying down in my water bed, listening to Dexter Gordon Song “Round Midnight”. I heard not the jazz sound, but a loud noise coming from my front door. The door was busted wide open and (ten) undercover police with gun pointed in my face!
Suddenly I was handcuffed and the police officer was reading my rights! Was I dreaming or living the American Nightmare.”
“American Street Mack” will shock readers with its authenticity and the events it describes. Many readers will want to disbelieve, but De La Soussa reassures them everything is real. “Life,” he says, “is the best teacher.”
