A Disjointed Search for the Will to Live

Foreword by: Robin D G Kelley

Paperback

Price: $13.00

Overview

Beginning with surrealistic impressions of the author’s current prison environment, this provocative book opens into a narrative centred around the ghettos of Baltimore. Our young narrator, inspired heavily by the author’s own harrowing experiences, describes a sometimes brutal, sometimes beautiful childhood in urban poverty and adolescence in incarceration. A story driven by its subtle, seamless prose and radical politics, A Disjointed Search For The Will To Live also resonates with painfully realistic anecdotes as well as vivid and memorable characters and events, and passages which drift poignantly through the depths of the subconscious mind. A politically informed, stirring and persuasive look at the horrors of racism and prison life as well as the personal and political strength it takes to overcome such hardships, this novel will take readers down a long path through confusion, anger, changing beliefs and intellectual rebirth.
