In John Sakkis's new book, hip hop and biography, both real and imagined, saturate travel on the islands

"The Islands is melos, music in 5-part harmonic sequences, beginning with the once-upon-a-time of ‘one night, after the happily of dinner.’ So it’s the sound of story in lyric concretion, rhythmic concision, the atmosphere of film, the senses migrating from one section to another, punning ‘knot exactly.’ This book is a nostos, a welcome home event, and will be your favorite memory palace.”
