Inkquani is a written two-year documentary that includes his poetry, letters, diary entries, and epilogues of his battles with the two. Inkquani is filled with gut-bucking narratives that give the reader an articulate insight while traveling beyond the realm of his pains and pleasures, while his honesty, hormones testimony and artistic merit the impacted driving force. In his battles to conquer his addiction of women and sex verses his addiction to art, Yanni finds that he does not fight these battles alone. As he engages in affairs and courtships with prostitutes, married woman, and close friends, Yanni realizes that he does not fight these battles alone. More than a book of poetry- Inkquani is a two-year documented voyage that explores the soul and conscience of Yanni that leads him to new battles between his conscience and desire, but who is the victor?

About the Author

At an early age Yanni began crafting poetry and short stories. Yanni spent a great deal of time alone writing poetry and stories to help him make sense of the world, but as he grew into a man he developed a love and desire for the opposite sex that somehow gave him a bleary eye in his focus to change the world. Yanni later enrolled in a university, but dropped out after finding himself no longer interested in studying and preparing for test, but a vested interest in women, alcoholism and jazz music. After dropping out of school Yanni began to write short articles, poetry, and stories for various publications. In 2002 Yanni wrote his first novel, but discarded the material before it was published.  A sporadic and extreme artist called by his friends; Yanni delivers his first published book of work Inkquani. He currently resides in San Francisco Ca.
