From Serj Tankian, lead vocalist for critically acclaimed band System of a Down, comes a striking debut poetry collection highlighting his best work of the past eight years. Like System of a Down's platinum-selling second album, Toxicity -- hailed by "Rolling Stone" as "a bouquet of smart rock and ardent social argument" and by "SPIN" as "the sound of now" -- Tankian's poetic style is willfully eclectic. Sometimes introspective, sometimes direct and cutting, these poems deal with subjects as wide-ranging as euthanasia and the nature of time itself. Featuring original artwork created by Sako Shahinian, a young Los AngelesA-based artist, "Cool Gardens" is honest, heartfelt, and humorous -- a talented artist at his uncompromising best.
Saul Williams Author of "She" Serj's words, like his voice, have a distinct aesthetic sensibility connected to an unyielding, visceral roar of passion. His capacity 'to mock a killing bird' while we wonder at the grace, beauty, and colorful range of his wingspan will be the trademark of both of his singing and writing careers. Serj is an amazing artist, full of passion, with a beautiful heart that pumps the essence of his vision and talent.
