Out of print for almost 30 years, Tommy Trantino’s 'Lock The Lock' is a lost classic of authentic literature read by a precious few.
This chapbook collects the central story of 'Lock The Lock': “The Angel,” which charts the events surrounding Trantino’s arrest and conviction for the murder of two New Jersey policemen in 1963.
Lauded by the leading writers and thinkers of its generation, “The Angel” is essential reading for lovers of gritty, outsider literature.
“I haven’t read a book in a long time that has hit me so hard -- a book so fierce, so poetic, so wise, so heartbreaking.” [HOWARD ZINN]
“Tommy Trantino has given us the works - from A to TZZIT. He has put it all in one book replete with maniacal illustrations as a handbook to Eternity.” [HENRY MILLER]
“I hear Trantino calling to the soul of the world, in his own language, by his own hand. Who can change the world? Just one person in one prison... More > cell... a caller of the Great Call.” [ALLEN GINSBERG]< Less
