Craig Stewart is one of America's most gifted writers. His work debuted on stage in Atlanta with A Day in the Life, wowing sold out audiences and critics alike. Stewart's highly anticipated memoir, Words Never Spoken, was released in 2012.
Praised as one of Stewart's most revealing and personal works yet, Words Never Spoken details his journey as a songwriter, entrepreneur, and playwright, and his self-discovery as a gay Black man living in Atlanta. Stewart writes candidly about his private conversations with media mogul Tyler Perry, and why Perry dubbed Stewart's work brilliant, but opted not to help him.
Stewart also pulls us through the rise and fall of his musical relationship with Grammy award-winning recording artist Brandy Norwood. Stewart's story is as clean and crisp as the early works of the late E. Lynn Harris, but destined for a lane of its own because of its nuanced richness.
Words Never Spoken reads like a diary that was never intended for the eyes of anyone other than its author. Stewart opens up about his struggles with love, friendships, and a two-year bout with depression that led to an internet sex addiction.
I love this Craig!! I can't wait for more!! This audible is great to listen to when I'm at the gym!!
What made the experience of listening to Words Never Spoken the most enjoyable?
The author himself reading the book. It came across like listening to a story from someone and they have you hanging on every word.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favorite character was Craig because I could relate to the feelings, issues and things he went through. He is classy, intelligent and confident
What does Craig Stewart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His voice. The tones and inflections of his voice draw you in and really make you feel his heart.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, in fact, it only took me two days to listen to the whole book. I was upset when I got to the end.
Any additional comments?
This book is simply amazing. It take you back in time and walks you through Stewart's transformation. Listening and/or reading this book is a MUST!! You won't be the same after reading it and there is information within it to help you change for the better. I have never been so happy with a book in my life.
I normally don't take the time to write reviews, but I just had to after reading this book in less than a day. I'm a heterosexual woman, but I too learned some life lessons while reading this book. One being to never give up on your dreams. And the other, is to always remain true to yourself. This book has inspired me to follow my dreams...
I identified characteristics of myself in this book and growing into adulthood. Can't wait for the next one!!! Great Job
It was great to hear the characters in voice, you get a real feel of the different perspectives. Good job!
