Wili G, a lifelong writer, poet, and lyricist, has completed his new book “Urban Rhapsody”: a collection of poignant and engaging stories inspired by the music and lyrics of Marvin Gaye’s iconic album, “What’s Going On.”

“I truly can’t remember which came first for me, the song or the pen; or if one is a spinoff of the other. What I do know for certain is that without either, life for me would be incomplete. Song has always been the alarm that wakes me and moves me to thought and action. It is the catalyst for my introspection- a prism through which I so often see the world in all its colors stark and bright.

With Urban Rhapsody—a collection of short stories all inspired by the songs of Marvin Gaye’s musical composition “What’s Going On”- I have attempted to share with you a vision of song and pen. There is sadness and happiness, gravity and humor, ugliness and beauty, and futility and hope. But mostly there is life with its many harmonies, shades, compositions, and meters.”                 -Wili G

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Wili G’s rousing and soulful tales invite the reader into the lives of his vivid characters, from a young, single father to a teenage girl accused of parricide. Each story moves to a rhythm that is infectious and compelling.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring and potent work can purchase“Urban Rhapsody” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
