Stephen Todd Booker, an inmate on Florida s death row, writes piercingly of incarceration. But he also sings, in a voice at once jagged and polished, of racism in Brooklyn and the South and of growing up black in 20th-century America, as he examines his life experience with metaphors that test the limits of language."
Paperback, 64 pages

These poems of a condemned man who taught himself poetry have a kind of giddy spark about them, and a few are genuine masterpieces. Still on death row after more than 30 years, Mr. Booker is a genius who, from inside a locked room, has made a positive contribution to society. "I, When a Bumblebee Bat" in particular is on my short list of favorite poems.
