Broke Baroque

Authored by Tony Medina

BROKE BAROQUE is the third in a series of Broke Books by award-winning poet, Tony Medina.

With razor sharp scatological whimsy, Medina's iconic ironic existential everyman-Broke-bears witness to the plight of homelessness from his curbside porch, torching the capitalist system and its myriad societal contradictions. BROKE BAROQUE is compulsively readable and will connect with fiction and poetry lovers alike. It includes a powerful introduction by McArthur-winner Ishmael Reed who says of Medina:

"He is the Poet Laureate of the Broke. Like Jean-Michel Basquiat who takes Hip Hop to another level, Medina covers some of the same territory as Hip Hop's best. Tupac. Public Enemy. Dead Prez."
