Publisher's Summary

Mama Black Widow tells the tragic story of Otis Tilson, a stunning black drag queen trapped in a cruel queer ghetto underworld. In hopes of escaping the racial bigotry andeconomic injustice of the South, Otis' family journeys north from their plantation to an urban promised land. Once in Chicago, Otis and his siblings become prisoners to a wasteland of violence, crime, prostitution, and rape. This is the gut-wrenching tale of the destruction of a family and the truest portrayal of homosexuality in the ghetto ever told.

    "Dark, gritty and hard... Awesome!"

    The dark story of a black drag queens personal ( traumatic ) life. Scars the skin and the mind.
    Intriguing till the end.

    Story
    "Saddest of them all"

    From the first chapter to the end the sad tale of Otis Tillson and his family. Sadness and despair follow him and his family. Another vivid and real story told by Robert Beck. I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "not bad but not good"

    Okay but not the best I have heard. I would not listen again. I think it was more so the readers voice than anything.
