I’m Alive And Kicking

-A +A

When I returned from several years of voluntary exile in southern Spain and Ghana, I discovered there was a strong rumor that I was dead! 

I put that in the category of wishful thinking.  I'm here on the South Side of Chicago in the hood I grew up in, broke, strong, active and writing and will leave life with great reluctance. Wait until I get my new shit out there!  Keep an eye out. 
Right now, I have two novels, the first volume of my autobiography, three stage plays and four screenplays in various stages of development and am putting the finishing touches on a comprehensive collection of poetry, short fiction and drama that dates back to stuff I did as an 18 year old freshman at the University of Wisconsin in 1948.

I intend offering e-mail copies of the manuscript of my new work, "Ammunition Poetry & Other Raps" for sale on the internet to finance publication of the book; so save your pennies because it's a bad motherfucker!

Black Star News Publisher’s Note: Greenlee is the author of The Spook Who Sat By The Door---and made a movie of the same title. No one should allow himself or herself to die before seeing this movie. Contact Greenlee via samgreenlee@sbcglobal.net to order a DVD. Forget about “Do The Right Thing,” “Forget About Sweeet Sweet Back,” both of which are brilliant. You’ll be sorry if you die before seeing “The Spook..” I only saw it in September 2006 and I am ashamed of myself. Better Later than Never.
