Read Detailed Book Description
Poet phenom Kwame Alexander grabs his pen again to carve words into the emotional heart of the human spirit. In his third book of poetry, Dancing Naked On The Floor, Alexander intentionally and successfully abandons all rules of conformity and runs wild among the playfulness of words. He uses new and ancient writing to explore love, life, and truth within oneself. Sample titles from his book, Why Alabama Has No Professional Sports Teams, Ten Teasons Why Fathers Cry At Night, Spellbound, and Haiku for Maya Angelou just give you a taste of the intensity that his book in packed with. In a separate "Extending the Dance" essay section, he divulges his no doubt controversial thoughts on bad writing, and his hotly debated views regarding poets and spoken word artists. Dancing Naked On The Floor uses deft wit and wide-eyed focus to bridge the gap between passion and politics; family and freedom. Alexander takes the "soul" of words and uses them to relinquish the hidden emotions we all have buried under years of memories.
