"L-vis Lives!" in this poetic novella on the collision of race, art, and appropriation in American culture.

Publisher Description

L-vis lives! A poetic journey of artists past and present who use and misuse Black culture, L-vis traces the story of an American archetype, from Elvis Presley to Eminem. All aspects of this cultural phenomenon - both positive and negative - are taken into account in Kevin Coval's fascinating and deeply moving collection. In this original poetry collection, Kevin Coval combines and re-imagines Elvis Presley, Eminem, the Beastie Boys and other artists who have used and misused black culture into a contemporary 'L-Vis' character.
