it was amazing

Writing encapsulates experience and at it's best, wisdom. Men with even a modicum of violence in them (which is most people let alone most men) can benefit from being reminded of it's costs. Every blow you throw in life is like a shovel full of dirt dug from the bottom and thrown out over the top of your own personal pit of despair. Men, especially young men can learn from the burden that Mosley's protagonist bears every day of his life. What do you do when you are at the bottom of a hole? Stop digging young brother, stop digging. Or you might find yourself learning what it means to be human while clinging to the vestiges of your own humanity in a prison cell.
