Advance praise for the Elba Memoires of an Ex-Capitalist
A tale of life after a socialist revolution, Elba takes the reader on an interesting journey to the future. Using the unexpected tactic of telling the story through the eyes of a capitalist (Kehler), who is in a ‘reeducation camp,’ we get a glimpse of the values and priorities of this future world (A world where gold is no longer the object of greed but is so unimportant, it has become the humble raw material for making door knobs!) If you want an intriguing glance into what could be, read Elba Memoirs of an Ex-Capitalist!

Hear out the “Word Out!”
With combinations of rhyme, Dada, free Verse, spoken word, expressism proletarian realism, and prose, Dietsche stretches the English language and bends-the-ear to over exaggerate reality to tell the reality of truth. He does it to expose lust, destructive tastes of profit wars, contemporary morals, depression, deprivation, loneliness, frustration, alienation or prison, and the Human from nature and product. Dietsche’s “Word Out” is so scathingly provocative and uniquely versed, you would think he’s writing in his own language! Think of it as anti-poetry.
Really soak his message in to help form a people-friendly, brave, and new un-utopian world, by educating, organizing, agitating.
