Mr. Stone does a fine job here. I had read some of Donald Goines' books more than a decade ago (when I could find them) and thought they were brutal, but truthful--and that's what we want from our literature, at least I do; I like the truth and stay clear of b.s. I'm a white dude by the way, and to me skin color does not matter; what matters is the quality of the writing, the quality of the art--and Donald Goines had it and Mr. Stone has it. I always wondered about the author of Dopefiend, Inner City Hoodlum and other titles; who was he and what happened to him? Why was he silenced and who was behind his murder? Well, we still do not know who killed this talented writer, but at least now with Eddie Stone's effort DONALD WRITES NO MORE we know where Donald Goines came from and what he was about. Writing, as for many others, was the light at the end of that dark tunnel for him and may have eventually pulled him through...and now, because he was murdered, we'll never know...but at least we have his books and Eddie Stones' biography of the man. Highly recommend it to anyone who can appreciate the works of Donald Goines and well-written biographies. We are grateful to Holloway House for standing behind these guys, as well others like Odie Hawkins and Iceberg Slim. They saw value in what these writers had to say long before the majority of the people in the U.S. ever did, although quite a few readers appear to be finally catching on--and we're happy about that!
