it was amazing

Over the course of a few moves in my early twenties, I "inherited" this book from my parents. (It's the original hardback from the 70's.) I read it for the first time in the 1990's, and it still haunts me. Wicker not only brings a specific event alive (one of the best non-fics I've ever read), but discusses racism in an unvarnished way, even honest enough to reflect on his own hypocrisy. The statistics Wicker gives may be 30 years old,but I dare you to read this and still believe that the traditional American prison system works. Highly recommended.
