Broke Baroque by Tony Medina

By Tony Medina

BROKE BAROQUE is the 3rd in a chain of Broke Books through 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 process and its myriad societal contradictions. BROKE BAROQUE is compulsively readable and should connect to fiction and poetry fans alike. It incorporates a strong creation through 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 a different point, Medina covers a number of the related territory as Hip Hop’s most sensible. Tupac. Public Enemy. useless Prez."
— Ishmael Reed
