About this product
- Description1988: at four-years-old, he short-circuited his home with a silver spoon and a Betamax video player. 1989: stopped a 700-strong student assembly with a tantrum. 1995: was chased through jungle growth by a crazed, frustrated French teacher called Monsieur Batcock...Misfit? Apparently - until a little family research reveals a pattern of mischief reaching as far back as a great grandfather, and so the story begins: I'm from a long line of trouble makers, of ash skinned Africans, born with clenched fists and a natural thirst for battle only quenched by breast milk. They'd suckle as if the white silk sliding between gums were liquid peace treaties from mums. In The 14th Tale, Inua vividly describes the exploits of a natural-born mischief growing from clay streets in Nigeria to roof tops in Dublin - and, finally, to heartbreak in London.
- Author BiographyBorn in Nigeria in 1984, Inua Ellams is an internationally touring poet, playwright, performer, graphic artist & designer. He has published two pamphlets of poetry: 'Candy Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars' and 'Thirteen Fairy Negro Tales'. His first play 'The 14th Tale' (a one-man show which he performed) was awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh International Theatre Festival and his third, 'Black T-Shirt Collection' ran at England's National Theatre. He is currently developing Barber Shop Chronicles (National Theatre), The Spalding Suite (Southbank Centre) and New Dogs (Soho Theatre) where he is their Talawa writer in resident for 2015. In graphic art & design, online and in print, he tries to mix the old with the new, juxtaposing texture and pigment with flat shades of colour and vector images. He lives and works from London, where he founded the Midnight Run, a nocturnal urban excursion.
