"August 22, 1978, the day I oozed out into this glorified capital at Greater Southeast Hospital. It amazes me sometimes that I can remember that far back. I remember me, Maurice Pittman, as a baby boy crying when things didnít go my way."

READ CHAPTER 1

 

Once Upon A Time in Chocolate City: Son of a Street Fiend is a story packed with shocking drama, lovable loyalty and heart-wrenching facts.  It tells of a child, Maurice Pittman, who never had the chance to enjoy the innocence or experiences that a normal child endures. Maurice is raised by his father, Johnny Pittman Jr., who has good intentions of raising his son in a righteous manner, but the path becomes a tail spin of turbulent times. Maurice is forced to learn the streets, dope-fiend schemes and accept the neglect by family members. He becomes a co-dependent of his fatherís addiction to the streets, drugs, women and money spending. When his fatherís transgressions catches up with him, Maurice is left alone and unguided; relying on the dark streets of Chocolate City for comfort. During his journey, heís faced with numerous adversities and obstacles. This story carries you through some of the roughest streets of Washington, DC through the eyes of a child whoís raised in the shadow of an addict. Will Dadís street-fiend style rub off on Maurice Pittman the right way or turn him into a Street Fiend in the end?
