The brilliant and provocative second book of poems by Thomas Sayers Ellis, now available in paperback
Skin, Inc. is Thomas Sayers Ellis's ambitious argument in sound and image for an America whose identity is in need of repair. In lyric sequences and with his own photographs, Ellis traverses the African American and American literary landscapes and performs tributes for the Godfather of Soul, James Brown; the King of Pop, Michael Jackson; and the election of President Barack Obama. This book assures Ellis's place as one of the most audacious poets now writing.
