More About the Author

Inua Ellams was born in Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria in 1984. He works as an internationally touring poet, playwright and performer. He has seven published books including 'Thirteen Fairy Negro Tales' (Poetry, Flipped Eye: 2005) 'The 14th Tale' (Play, Flipped Eye: 2009) - which was commissioned by the Battersea Arts Centre and awarded a Fringe First at the Edinburgh Festival, before a sold out run at The National Theatre in London, England. His third theatre piece, 'Black T-Shirt Collection' (Play, Oberon: 2012) also completed a sold out run at the National Theatre in 2012.

His poems have been published in magazines and anthologies including: Generation Txt (Penned in the Margins: 2006), City State (Penned in the Margins: 2009), The Salt Book of Younger Poets (Salt: 2011), The Shuffle Anthology (Shuffle: 2011), Chorus (MTV Books: 2012). Candy Coated Unicorns and Converse All Stars (Flipped Eye: 2011) is his second pamphlet of poetry and he is currently working on #Afterhours, his third pamphlet. Working also a graphic designer and visual artist, Inua's work is imbibed with plentiful imagery - the starting point of his poems, and further, he describes the one-man shows he writes and performs as failed 'poems'. Inua Ellams acknowledges that as biographies go, this is essentially a gathered list of achievements that say nothing about his personality, thus, promises he is a nice guy. 'Trust me...' he says '... I'm Nigerian'.

Product Description

Review

Ellams verse brims with magical realism... His delivery is charming and natural, and he is able to spin intricate, rhythmic webs of words with apparent ease. 45 minutes of allowing Inua Ellams to wrap his words around you is far from a painful experience. What is clear is that Ellams writing and performance, not to mention his Fringe First award, show that he has definite potential. --What's On Stage

...scorching… an intense and dense 40-minute monologue. --Guardian
