Tony Medina's Latest Book Released by NYQ Books

My Old Man Was Always on the Lam by Tony Medina is the latest release by NYQ Books.

My Old Man Was Always on the Lam is a blues memoir in verse. With
brutal honesty and lyrical prowess, Tony Medina plays the changes in an
intimate collection that sticks like a stinging Ali punch and moves
like a New York City subway train through the raw, unmitigated terrain
of his psyche. Sparked by the sudden death of his father in Harlem, My Old Man Was Always on the Lam
examines his relationship with a long-lost mother who abandoned him at
birth, exploring his Bronx projects childhood and his relationship with
the paternal grandmother who wrestled him from the clutches of the State
and raised him, culminating with a reunion with his terminally ill
mother, attempting to fill in the gaps of a precarious past destined to
collide with its bare-bones present. In this, his fifth full-length
collection, Tony Medina is at his most personal and revelatory.
