Usually dispatched within 7 - 15 working days.

With its defiance for any one tradition or voice, Thomas Sayers Ellis's debut becomes a powerful argument against monotony
" A dream. A democracy. A savage liberty."
" And yet another anthem and yet another heaven"
"and yet another party wants you."
" Wants you wants you wants you."
--from "Groovallegiance"

In one poem, Thomas Sayers Ellis prognosticates, "Pretty soon, the Age of the Talk Show / Will slip on a peel left in the avant- gutter." The result is "The Maverick Room," the testing ground of determination and serendipity, where call-and-response becomes Steinian echo becomes Post-Soul percussive pleasure becomes a bootlegged recording hustled out of a D.C. go-go club.
