Omschrijving

A fascinating panoply of poems, stories and photos on the global spread of the deadly Coronavirus. No.1 NY Times bestselling author/poet Ian Halperin wrote these powerful poems of survival and overcoming while being quarantined in a hotel in Medellin, Colombia during the height of Covid-19. Halperin was in Colombia working on a feature story about Medellin's prosperous revival the past decade from a Narcos danger zone into a vibrant hub of high-tech and art. Six days into his trip, Colombian immigration officials showed up at his hotel, telling him very few foreigners were left in Colombia and those who remained had to go into quarantine and not move an inch from their room. In this highly anticipated book, Halperin delves into the disease that can easily mutate without warning. He dissects the virus' ravaging toll on the world in a most unique way - a lyrical work of stunning urgency. He pays homage to the heroic acts of frontline and essential workers while casting aspersions on the dubious manner in which world leaders were to respond. Graphic but powerful, this riveting, groundbreaking book will shed light on the world's inexhaustible fascination with the deadly virus and how it shut down the world in the early months of 2020.About The Author: No.1 NY Times bestselling author Ian Halperin, nicknamed "the Poet Eye", has written many bestselling books which have been translated in more than 100 countries and 30 languages. He is also an award-winning filmmaker, having directed several highly acclaimed documentaries, including Gone Too Soon (Michael Jackson), Wish You Weren't Here (Roger Waters/Antisemitism) and The Cobain Case (Paramount). Also a professional saxophone player, Halperin has toured with his original music all over North America and Europe. He regularly appears on tv and radio networks, including Sirius XM, NBC, CBS, CNN and ABC. Halperin is currently working on a six-volume book and film series on greed and corruption by the world's richest, elite public figures.Praise for Ian Halperin: "A judicious presentation of explosive material" - The New Yorker"Halperin comes to the story determined to hold to the truth, no matter where it leads him." - The Times (U.K.)"A fascinating portrait...Halperin is an excellent writer." - Jackie Collins"under-the-microscope masterpiece of pop-culture reporting ... [Halperin delivers] the goods via prodigious digging through court documents, hundreds of Hollywood sources and the kind of dogged shoe-leather reporting that has gone out of fashion."(LA Weekly)
