    Paperback Description:

    ?Lewis has composed an observant and urban B-boy’s rites of passage … a hiphop bildungsroman told in prose full of buoyancy and bounce.”?Greg Tate, author of Flyboy in the Buttermilk

    Scars of the Soul is a confessional, stylistic account (in the Joan Didion tradition) of coming-of-age in the Bronx alongside the birth and evolution of hip-hop culture.

    Miles Marshall Lewis was born in the Bronx in 1970 and currently lives in Manhattan. He is a former editor of Vibe and XXL, and his work has been published in The Nation, The Source, the Village Voice, Rolling Stone, Essence and other magazines. He holds a B.A. in sociology from Morehouse College and studied at the Fordham University School of Law.
