A fantastic memoir from an internationally recognized poet. It's a hard read, with explicit descriptions of Baca's drug-filled and violent youth, plus an unflinching account of his six years in America's prison system in the 1970s. The book explores themes of racism, poverty, culture, abandonment, violence, drugs, systematic dehumantization (through poverty, jail or racism), redemption and spirituality.
