Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Eli Shaber is an bona-fide original voice in contemporary prose-poetry. Here he performs seven vignettes captured in brilliant, high-definition video. The works are both lyrical and painfully playful and employ a fresh, mischievous mix of couplet styling. But, the real knock-out punch comes in the form of unexpectedly complex wordplay punctuated with delicious phrase twisting. The subjects are the stuff of our mundane daily life. Turned upside-down, poetically.

About the Actor

Eli Shaber is a retired surgeon who is now a poet, traveler, and raconteur living in New York City. In addition, he is at the forefront of a new media form known as spoken-word Video-Poetry. Dr. Shaber has previously published the epic-style novel curiously entitled The Dude 'Du Jour' Of Somalia (Greenpoint Press, 2010). Accordingly, he also narrated the CD audio companion to The Dude.

Isabella Viramontes:

I had the opportunity to write the first review for Eli Shaber's novel "The Dude'Du Jour'Of Somalia"
Now, remarkably, here I am again to write the first review for "White Boy Cool".

"White Boy Cool"(as I've grown to expect from Shaber) is magnificently polar from "The Dude". "The Dude" offered
a prose-poetry epic-style narration peppered with powerful, humorous, exhausting and even gruesome images.
To this day difficult for me to forget.

"White Coy Cool" is no such animal. I adore the subtitle to death: 'Seven Acts Of Vicious Funambulism'.
I mean how funny is that? Really funny.

The Seven Acts referred to are in fact shorts stories. These spoken-word ditties are, in and of themselves, quite interesting.
Shaber writes of 'small things'. Little 'bite-sized' chunks of life. But, of course, there is a twist. A gigantic twist.
Each of 'The Seven Acts' are written is classic couplet/quatrain format. It seems effortless and breezy, and therein lies the treat.

The stories (poems) are contemporary and bustling with beautifully crafted, musical rhyme. As a special unexpected addition,
Eli has a marvelous speaking voice. A lot of range. He seamlessly moves from professorial to hipster then to downright funky.

Funky, Hipster, Professorial. Hard to pull off, but Dr. Shaber seems to have done it with ease. And I'll damned if he doesn't sound
like he's having a wonderful time.

I certainly did.
