About the Author

Known as THE NOMAD JUNKIE due to his peripatetic lifestyle and artistic restlessness, DENNIS LEROY KANGALEE is a NYC-based writer from Queens born to West Indian parents. An Outsider Artist from the get go, he has no degree and has won no awards. His stories, plays, essays, and satire reflect his own anger and frustration as he sees the world's injustice in an everyday observation. An expelled performing artist from Juilliard and maverick of the New York underground, Kangalee has led several lives & is constantly looking for meaning.
Since 1997, he has begged, borrowed, and stolen to support his art. He toured six months doing his own renditions of Beckett monologues & texts by Israel Horovitz and Dick Gregory before finally writing his first screenplay with playwright Ed Bullins. In 1999 he revived James Baldwin's classic "Blues For Mister Charlie" at the National Black Theater in Harlem.
Urged by the Last Poets to continue writing prose during the creation of his 2001 cult-film movie about racism and its consequences, "As an Act of Protest", (written & directed under his stage name, Dennis Leroy Moore) Kangalee's writing is both political and personal. Inspired by the Black Arts Movement, punk, and Theater of the Absurd, Kangalee draws inspiration from his own life as opposed to Literary History or knowledge of the classics. Adopting the "Nomad Junkie" as his nom de plume while homeless and later in a self-imposed exile overseas, he writes for the little man caught in the snow and beneath the corporate avalanche, those who draw lines in the sand--the losers, the rebels, the tormented, and the romantic rovers hovering on the margins of the mainstream who dare to try to make sense of 'Life in Society' and the doorway of 21st Century-Brave New World-ethos.

Currently, he is recording his first spoken word album, "Gentrified Minds", based on his "punk" play about corporate-friendly gentrification and the Nouveau Capitalism emerging as a result and the YES WE CAN generation's struggle to fulfill or betray its destiny.
Kangalee is married and lives in NYC.
