Publisher's Summary

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.

This Story is Amazing!

I love this book. I love the narration, not only because he did a good job, but he is the book. Craig reading his own story made me feel like he was sharing his story with me. His most intimate moments, and courageous interactions, and his smart wiit. A good read, indeed.

Excellent read

Very engaging from beginning to end and the message regarding HIV needs to be screamed from the roof tops.

Love this book

Craig has a way with words. As a black gay man that use to live in Atlanta. I could relate to most of his experiences. I am truly grateful, and definitely looking forward to his other books.

Gay-TL Unicorn: A Horse with a Dream

Craig's story telling in this audiobook is amazing! I didn't want to turn it off. He unravels and dissects the complexity of young people with aspirations who come to Atlanta (known as the "Gateway to the South" and the mecca of Black LGBTQIA self-discovery and exploration) chasing status, love, community, and dreams. Sadly, most gifted people in the life who come to the "city of dreams" end up stressed, homeless, destitute, while struggling with addictions and/or compromised health due to indulgence in the sex crazed underground culture of Atlanta living. Craig thoughtfully explores how the excitement and whimsy of the Atlanta LGBTQIA nightlife can be the undoing of those who arrive broken and willing to do anything to chase attention, acceptance, and adoration, which is the unicorn that all of humanity chases, thus making this labor of love a mirror for mankind and an olive branch for straight and gay people to find common ground and align.
