About the Author

Gil Scott-Heron was born in Chicago. He has been opening eyes, minds and souls for over forty years. A highly influential and widely admired singer, proto-rapper, jazz pianist, published poet, novelist and socio-political commentator, Scott-Heron remains a unique and major figure in global music. With over twenty albums to his name, his politically charged output has won him an international following. His work illuminates a philosophy of life that holds human affection as well as political and artistic responsibility the underlying factors that inspire his writing.


* For more than two decades, [Gil Scott-Heron] has been committed to examining those facts of the human condition that most of us would rather forget ... he is an artist who has crafted witty but crucial insights for Black America. Washington Post * A biting social satire. Daily Express * They are impressive and ambitious works that vigorously mix street savvy and intellectual flair. GQ [On THE VULTURE & THE NIGGER FACTORY] * With the pace of cleanly constructed thrillers they wield the force of a highly focused political consciousness ... the clash of voices gives them a potency, both political and literary, which has survived changes in fashion. Herald [on THE VULTURE & THE NIGGER FACTORY] * There's plenty of tension and sex, but also a whole heap of politics. These are ace period pieces. Select [on THE VULTURE & THE NIGGER FACTORY] * The books are drenched with the dark overtones of America's underworld, battered by the storms of politics and race. They are as sexy as they are psychotic. City Life [on THE VULTURE and THE NIGGER FACTORY]
