The book is a contemporary Dante’s Inferno; a journey through the confessional landscape of a masculine identity. It uses poetry to construct a narrative that explores themes of death and loss, sex and love, and the modern American and Jewish identity.
IS SHE AVAILABLE? combines popular genres such as comics with the arcane avant- garde use of art and exceptional dynamic typographic layout. IS SHE AVAILABLE? is a web-nurtured collaboration between Igor Goldkind and 27 artists, sculptors and musicians from the world of Comics, Fantasy, Fine Art and Jazz, including Bill Sienkiewicz, David Lloyd, Liam Sharp, Glenn Fabry, Shaky Kane, Lars Henkel and the cutting edge sculptural typography of the highly acclaimed Rian Hughes. Composer and world jazz virtuoso, Gilad Atzmon improvises along with a quintet of his musicians responding to Igor’s poetry to create powerfully evocative sound tracks available for separate download and contained within the eBook editions.
A Multi Media, Spoken Word & Music Performance Tour will happen later this year.
