Published 2012 / Language: English / Format: Paperback / Length: 90 pages - with 48 full color illustrations -
With the use of an unusual, modern poetic verse and enhanced with provocative, artistic imagery, The Unwords take full advantage of their author's lack of identity and almost inhuman levels of introspection, as they set out to inform, to educate, to criticise and hopefully inspire, by pushing the reader out of his comfort zone and into a world in which so many things have already been left undone... but nothing will be left unsaid.
The book has a very unique and unorthodox structure which makes it highly distinctive, in a way that it would be very hard to decide in which section of an ordinary book store the book should be placed in. Psychology, poetry, philosophy, linguistics and social sciences blend together with the arts, as the author partners the reader through a disturbing, thought-provoking journey in which education, relationships, religion, politics and social behavior are stripped down to their bare foundations and deconstructed through the eyes of a man who has no name, no face, nothing to gain... therefore no reason to lie.
The author's name is not showcased on the book's cover or within its content and his identity is only known to the Copyright Services and the legal departments which represent him. Distributed exclusively through their official website and blog, the author has kept hold of all rights to publication and distribution of The Unwords and refuses to sell through any on-line book retailers like Amazon, B&N or Ebay. The author also persistently refuses to add a ".99" price tag on his work. The Unwords have become widely known for the use of actual physical bank notes within their visual content. It holds a proud position as the only non-educational book of modern literature that does not bear any name of author, publishing group, political organization or social movement on its cover. A Goodreads Choice Awards Finalist for 2012, the first anonymous author to ever be nominated in the history of Goodreads.
