A Novel "From the Streetz of Dallas"

Everyone's stealing my book titles. The latest is Johnny Wilson, whose self-published tome is titled Str8 Ballin' and is available from AuthorHouse. Says here it's "a riveting storry from the streetz of Dallas, where money, power, and greed rule. Sex is everywhere, loyalty is everything, and betrayal’s always lurking. Jealousy and envy come with tha’ territory if you Str8 Ballin’. From block hustling to running a record label, this is urban culture at its finest!" Wilson says in his bio he's a South Oak Cliff grad who and an ex-military man who was "convicted of conspiracy to distribute drugs." And I do like an excerpt that ends in the word "underwear," even if "underpants" is funnier. --Robert Wilonsky
