"Bernstein has been there and brought it back. Bernstein is a writer." -William S. Burroughs 'I Am Secretly an Important Man' is a portrait of writer and poet Steven J. Bernstein (aka Jesse Bernstein), one of Seattle's most celebrated and troubled voices. His angry, surprisingly fresh and lyrical writings are about sensitive souls, drifters and drug addicts; the people alienated by a society that refuses to understand them. Bernstein peels back the ugliness and the darkness of life on the fringe to expose tender and not so tender human feeling. His unique rhythms, filled with humor and pain, were especially exciting when read in his own gravely voice. Bernstein was an integral part of the legendary Seattle rock scene of the late 80's and early 90s, and in 1991 was dubbed the "Godfather of Grunge" by the British magazine THE INDEPENDENT. LIMITED EDITION OF 1000 LP/DVD/POSTER PACKAGE WITH AN UNRELEASED LP OF JESSIE BERNSTEIN SONGS PRODUCED BY STEVE FISK AND PETE SILLEN "Mesmerizing." -Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine, CRITICS PICK "Engagingly voyeuristic. Consistently entertaining." -Mike Hale, The New York Times "A tribute to the jagged edge that Bernstein was forced to walk." -S. James Snyder, Art Forum
