Read full description of the books:



This memoir was difficult to read because of the brutal reality of the criminal justice system that it depicts. This is not a "how-to" lesson if you're an aspiring poet. It is a reality lesson on the perverted American justice system, specifically if you are poor, male, black or brown. That Baca became the writer and poet that he is -- is only testimony to him, and his unique brain. Baca describes what prison is like, what solitary confinement is like, and how sensory deprevation transformed him. Again, this won't work for most people. This is a history of the American southwest in the 20th Century. It is unpleasent. It is not heroic. It makes me want to take some dull scissors and snip the map above Colorado and down across Arizona and through southern California and give it back to Mexico. And while I've got the scissors in hand--cut of the balls of the white men who perpetuate this system.
