Iced, Paperback / softback Book

Iced Paperback / softback

Part of the Canons series

Paperback / softback


Cornelius Washington is brimming with ambition and talent before his life is torn apart by a crack addiction.

Taking the form of a diary and written in an arresting stream-of-consciousness style, Iced ponders the gritty realities of Cornelius's present and past upheavals that have led him here. Iced paints a portrait of being Black in America and the ways marginalised communities suffer the consequences of shortsighted political policies.

First published in 1993, in the wake of the crack epidemic, Iced mixes the syncopated language of the streets with poetry from the heart to take the reader deep into the horrifying world of addiction.
