A Love Song, A Death Rattle, A Battle Cry Now Available as an Audiobook!

Some other big news on the way, but just a quick update: you can now listen to my book! I did the voiceover myself, in Big Cats' studio.

It's available via Audible, iTunes, or straight from Button Poetry. Here's the summary:

One part mixtape, one part disorientation guide, and one part career retrospective, this book brings together spoken word poems, song lyrics, and essays from the past decade of Guante’s work. From the exploration of toxic masculinity in "Ten Responses to the Phrase 'Man Up'," to the throwback humanist hip hop of "Matches," to a one-act play on the racial and cultural politics of Eminem, "A Love Song, A Death Rattle, A Battle Cry" is a practitioners eye-view of the intersections of hip hop, poetry, and social justice.
