Readers will witness love, lust, betrayal and revenge unfold between the pages of this riveting, dramatic and sometimes humorous and touching novel.
The real life issues that this book touches will surely make Muhammad’s message- Life is bigger than any one person’s ego- real for all who read it.
“My book is not mushy and far-fetched,” Muhammad says. “It is very entertaining, but it is real. It doesn’t try to make the characters lovable all the time. It makes them human instead.”
Here’s what readers are saying about Chris Low Superstar:
“…..This book was the bomb it start out from the first chapter catching my attention. I finished in one day. Been awhile since I was able to find a book to do that. Great read.”
“……This book grabbed my attention from the beginning and held it. There are a lot of things going on in this story, but you never get lost, the author flows smoothly from one thing to another and back again. He also ties it all together nicely in the end……”

Talib Abdul Muhammad is a native of Harlem, New York. He grew up in a time where his dreams were seemingly unreachable and far fetched. Talib knew since childhood that he wanted to be a writer. His first venture into the writing arena came when he was in the fifth grade, where he wrote an entire play that was performed at his elementary school. The play was a huge success and fueled Talib’s passion for the arts even more.
But, as the case with many inner city youth, Talib-though he had a strong mother guiding him- nearly fell to the wayside. Although he loved writing, he started to doubt his gift and left his dreams behind for a life that appeared more tangible, more realistic and easier to obtain.
Unfortunately, he ended up in the one place his loving mother always warned him he would end up if he ever got involved with the streets-prison.
During his 17 year incarceration, Talib began to reflect on his life and his bad decisions. Eventually, he turned to the one thing that would keep him going: His writing.
He is now the author of his first published novel and is busy working on several projects.
His number one goal is to redefine success by living his dreams and using his life’s story to help inner city youth make positive choices regarding their future. Talib hopes that his life will uplift and impact his community and future generations.
