Publisher's Summary

Comprising short fiction from the early 1970s to the 21st century, most of which has never been published.

Tales of the Out & the Gone reflects the astounding evolution of America's most provocative literary anti-hero. The first section of the audiobook, War Stories, offers six stories enmeshed in the volatile politics of the 1970s and 1980s. The second section, Tales of the Out & the Gone, reveals Amiri Baraka's increasing literary adventurousness, combining an unpredictable language play with a passion for abstraction and psychological exploration. Throughout, Baraka's unique and constantly changing literary style will educate listeners on the evolution of one of America's most accomplished literary masters of the past four decades.

Amazing

Tremendous work - to be listened to, many times more than once. The narrator is outstanding, and the works are sublime, disturbing, enigmatic, mellifluous, brilliant.

Absolutely fabulous‼️

This was my first time listening to anything by Amiri Baraka and Kevin Free did not disappoint, making one feel as if I was one of the subjects in the story. Absolutely fabulous all around effort.

Great Collection

Kevin Free did a fantastic job bringing Baraka's characters to life. Baraka's has a hit-you-in-the-gut way of crafting socio-political points the remain relevant even today.
