Product Description

A nameless character. A faceless figure. A disturbing, thought-provoking journey through the facts of the world we live in that we often refuse to acknowledge.By taking full advantage of their author's lack of identity and extreme levels of introspection, The Unwords cut straight through the pretenses and the fallacies in our language as they unleash a full scale attack on all fronts of cultural and social decay. Neither an author's name nor a publisher's name is showcased on its front and back cover; only the title is present.Written in fluent verse and expanding into full-page, full color illustrations which carry the theme into artistic territory, the words blend seamlessly with the arts as they form novel-like chapters that end with a single, dynamic sentence; a new, refreshing form of writing known as "Graphic-verse." The book is characterized by the author's brutal honesty when dealing with personal issues and it is also unforgiving and relentless when it approaches matters of poverty, corruption, home-ownership, religion and healthcare. The extensive use of artistic visuals by the author in combination with his dynamic verse, results in a very inventive and original structure, while its linguistic and philosophical approach to various contemporary social and psychological issues blurs the line which separates fiction from reality.Words are meant to be spoken. In a dishonest world, what remains unspoken can only be the truth. In a dishonest world... all words can go to hell!
