In his greatly anticipated new full-length book of poetry, the first since The Dead Emcee Scrolls in 2006, ‘;the poet laureate of hip-hop’ (CNN) Saul Williams presents his ideas, observations, realizations, dreams, and questions about the state of America, the American psyche, and what it means to be American.

After four years abroad, Williams returned to the United States and found his head twirling with thoughts on race, class, gender, finance, freedom, guns, cooking shows, dog shows, superheroes, not-so-super politicianseverything that makes up our country. US(a.) is a collection of poems that embodies the spirit of a culture that questions sentiments and realities, embracing a cross-section of pop culture, hip-hop, and the greater world politic of the moment. Williams explores what social media may only hint attimes and realities have changed; there is a connect and a disconnect.

We are wirelessly connected to a past and path to which we are chained. Saul Williams stops and frisks the moment, makes it empty its pockets, and chronicles whats inside. Here is an extraordinary book that will find its place in the hands and minds of a new generation.
