Description - The Maverick Room by Thomas Sayers Ellis

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 heavenand 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.
