Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A poet and polemicist whose lyrics have inspired and galvanized generations."  —GQ

One glance at Now and Then and it becomes evident that this is not merely a collection of a songwriter's lyrics. The song-poems of this undisputed "bluesologist" triumphantly stand on their own, evoking the rhythm and urgency which have distinguished Gil Scott-Heron's career. This collection carries the reader from the global topics of political hypocrisy and the dangers posed by capitalist culture to painfully personal themes and the realities of modern day life. His message is black, political, historically accurate, urgent, uncompromising, and mature, and as relevant now as it was in the early 1970s.

Synopsis:

A collection of song-poems, covering deeply personal themes as well as global hypocrisy and the dangers posed by capitalist culture.

Synopsis:

Now and Then is the most comprehensive and wide-ranging collection of Gil Scott-Heron's poetry ever to be published and draws on work written over four decades.

About the Author
