Slate has an interesting review of the 700 page Street Talk by Randy Kearse, who was incarcerated for 13 and a half years in federal prison on drug charges. Kearse self-published the book in 2005 but it has just come out in a new edition.
Sheidlower pronounced it “pretty good.”
Sheidlower was somewhat disappointed at the lack of derogatory terms, but overall, he pronounced the guide “pretty good.” He offered to submit some of Kearse’s slang words for inclusion in the Oxford English Dictionary.
The book is searchable at Amazon.
