Maybe I missed it, but I don’t believe I’ve seen anything mentioned about Snoop’s book dropping last week. I find that kind of odd, since any idiot can see this thing is destined for the Times Best Seller list.
The year is 1989, Long Beach, California. When Ulysses Jeffries’s mother decides to move her family from the drug-infested East Side to what she believes is safer North Long Beach, Ulysses and his little brother Bing are hurled into a world like none they’ve experienced before. Instead of moving on up, they’ve just moved on over.
From a classically trained piano-playing gangster named Buddha, to the next-door neighbor, a foster mother turned basehead named Crazy Betty, to Uncle Mike, a freeloading relative who has a knack for showing up when times are good and a knack for leaving just before they turn bad — these characters and more take you on a journey like never before.
Oh yeah, this has Oprah Book Club written all over it. Snoop plans to feed the inevitable demand that Love Don’t Live Here No More will surely generate with 6 more volumes.
