This anthology of fiction and creative non-fiction was written in an ongoing writing workshop at San Quentin State Prison by twelve men, mostly Lifers, all serious writers. A strong theme emerging... More > from this collection is the nature of violence and its effects on human beings, and the kind of struggle required to turn violence around. The subtitle of this anthology, “Tragedy, Struggle, and Hope,” speaks to this kind of vision. However, the seriousness of the subject matter doesn’t mean these stories are all heavy and harsh. There is much humor, wisdom, complexity and hope to be found in these pages. You’ll encounter struggles of temptation and forgiveness, soul-searching inquiries into the past, tragic love stories, battle bots, psychogenic amnesia, first-person accounts of Black Power history, prehistoric family drama, gang cease-fires, tommyknockers, and much more.

Search For Truth The seeker begins... By BRYAN RADZIN

Ships in 3-5 business days
I don't have so much tricks up my sleeve, as much as journalistic fundamentals to take down powerful and influential people that think they’re completely above the law and won’t ever get... More > caught. I want to show them that we’re watching and they will be held accountable. So if a politician is only in it for the money, and say they want illegals to leave, is there a possibility they don’t want them to leave? Is there a chance they really want them here because immigrant labor is cheaper than American? Are politicians making money hand over fist because the companies that employ immigrants make truckloads of it themselves and therefore contribute more to campaigns? The vigilante types are probably linked to the corrupt politicians, who both stand to lose equally if immigrants were made legal. The politicians would lose the status quo of cheap labor they can take advantage of, and the vigilantes would have to deal with a multi-racial society; which is all meant to benefit the status quo.< Less
