Danny Hoch's multi-ethnic collage of characters will speak in print Nov. 11 when Villard Books releases a compilation volume of his two solo pieces, Some People and Jails, Hospitals & Hip Hop.

Hoch, a native of Queens, won an OBIE award for Some People, which toured 35 cities in the US, visited three foreign countries, and became an HBO special. Jails was nominated for a Drama Desk Award and will be made into a feature film and spoken word CD.

Both works reflect a culturally mixed and diverse world that Hoch found himself in in Queens. Characters in the pieces include "Flip", a white teenager who wants to be a black gangsta rapper, "Blanca", a Puerto Rican office worker taken aback by her boyfriend's desire to wear a condom and "Flex", an African American who makes fun of a peer who wants to go to college.

"Jails, Hospitals & Hip Hop and Some People" will sell for $12.95 as a paperback published by Villard Books, a division of Random House.
