FROM THE POET the Chicago Tribune calls “the new voice of Chicago,” comes L-vis Lives!, a bold new collection of poetry and prose exploring the collision of race, art, and appropriation in American culture. L-vis is an imagined persona, a representation of artists who have used and misused Black music. Like so many others who gained fame and fortune from their sampling, L-vis is as much a sincere artist as he is a thief. In Kevin Coval's poems, L-vis' story is equal parts forgotten history, autobiography, and re-imaginings. We see shades of Elvis Presley, the Beastie Boys, and Eminem, and meet some of history's more obscure “whiteboy” heroes and anti-heroes: legendary breakdancers, political activists, and music impresarios. A story of both artistic theft and radical invention, L-vis Lives! is a poetic novella on all of the possibilities and problems of “post-racial” American culture—where Black art is still at times only fully accepted in a white face, and every once in a while an “L-vis” comes along to step in to the void. i am a hero to most. the great hope of something other. a complex back-story. something other than the business of my father. bland’s antonym. jim crow’s black sheep. the forgotten son left to rise in the darkness among the dis carded in the wild of working class, single mother hoods. a hero who transcends who translates the dis satisfactions of the plains; kids of kurt cobain, method man amphetamine, the odd Iowan who digs dirt and lights beyond the pig yard, spits nebraskan argot, hero to the heart land, middle brow(n) america

Since it was founded by German immigrants in the late 1800s, Chicago's Lincoln Park neighborhood has been an exciting and ever-changing place to live. Bordered by Diversey, Ashland, North Avenue, and Lake Michigan, Lincoln Park has undergone countless changes while always remaining a strong Chicago community. Through a collection of more than 200 photographs, Lincoln Park, Chicago offers the reader a journey through homes, schools, businesses, museums, churches, the Lincoln Park Zoo, and the park itself. With anecdotes and images from before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, to the 1940s when war turned family homes into rooming houses, to the bustling, jam-packed Lincoln Park of today, this vibrant and beautiful neighborhood springs to life.
