Hello, Sunshines, I have the huge pleasure to be apart of the cover reveal for Medusa’s Children by Keith Antar Mason. This cover is certainly striking, I can’t wait to share it with you all, firstly thank you to Kelly at Love Books Tours for inviting me to this cover reveal. Now lets a take a look at this book…

From performing in the alleys of LA, Keith Antar Mason recounts his experience of getting on stage at the ICA in London with The Hittite Empire Performance Art Collective, an all-Black Intergenerational Men’s Cultural Elite.

The narrative of the London trip and snippets of the author’s experiences back in LA is effortlessly interwoven with visceral and evocative images from Black History, as memorised in his genes:

We are the nightsticked

Billyclubbed

Strangeways

Strangefruits

Survivors

Every summer is a Red Summer

Medusa’s Children is a one voice rant, a prose memoir, a wish poem.

This is a memory written in

Ashes and Fog

Our Life on Mars

Stone cold word killers

Spitting Knowledge and Truth

Mother Medusa

Make us

Subliminal Seducers

MEDUSA’S CHILDREN will be published in October 2020
