Inua Ellams

PaperBack (21 Jun 2012)

In a world where tower blocks are stone mountains and city walls are urban tapestries retelling epic fights, Michael keeps away from the warring tribes until a passerby helps him out of a tight situation. Instantly, he is pulled into the culture he has tried to escape. The city spirals out of control as battle lines are drawn and redrawn. In the quest for balance, loyalty, faith and friendships are tested, but will Michael succeed in ending the war? In rhythmic, sizzling poetry award-winning spoken word artist, Inua Ellams, conjures the violence of a city not unlike London and imagines a more beautiful world beyond it.

“Ellams’ verse brims with magical realism... His delivery is charming and natural, and he is able to spin intricate, rhythmic webs of words with apparent ease. 45 minutes of allowing Inua Ellams to wrap his words around you is far from a painful experience. What is clear is that Ellams’ writing and performance, not to mention his Fringe First award, show that he has definite potential.” – What’s On Stage
