"Prison Voices is an inmate-written book, made to encourage reading and writing in prisons. Within these pages twelve convict-authors reveal the dramatic details of their lives and their struggles."
"...Some of the pieces were uplifiting and hopeful; others heartbreaking, steeped in remorse. At times the words we read were most shocking in the precision of the author's self-reflection; at other times exasperating in what they revealed of the author's self-destructiveness." - from the introduction.
An important new book, beautifully produced. In addition to the inmates' writings, the book contains interviews with the authors and full color photos of them.
