Marvin X's National Book Tour, 2012



I want to go there where people asked me not to go, i.e., tell me what happened on your book tour. First of all, I want to tell you the strategy: I not only had to get in many cities but I had to get out of them in one piece. So this is a most serious matter, though it may not be serious to you, but to me it was most serious, no matter what city I was in, whether  NYC, Newark, NJ, Beaufort, SC, Houston, TX, Pilly, Pa, etc.

In South Carolina they told me to say nothing, shut the fuck up. They were my advisors and they said shut the fuck up, don't have no book signing or nothing else, just shut the fuck up and enjoy yourself. I did as they told me except when I went to the African Village, where I enjoyed myself.
