Sheby Saul Williams
Synopses & Reviews
Hailed as "a dreadlocked dervish of words...the Bob Marley of American poets" (Esquire), Saul Williams is a gifted young poet who is opening up this literary art form to a new generation of readers. Like his writing — a fearless mix of connecting rhythms and vibrant images — Saul Williams is unstoppable. He received raves for his performance as an imprisoned street poet in the Trimark Pictures release Slam, winner of the Camera d'Or at Cannes and the Grand Jury prize at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. The consummate spoken-word performance artist, Williams has also been signed by producer Rick Rubin to record a CD of his poetry.
She is a fascinating and unique collection of interconnected poems by this multi-talented star — and marks the beginning of an incredible and totally original artistic career.
