Overview

What is in the hearts and minds of those in prison? Inmates share their poems and prose in this collection.

The long strands of razor wire conceal from society what is it like on the inside. There is another world filled with violence, fear, hopelessness, and despair, which is seldom shared with the outside world. In this anthology, thirty-five inmates share their hearts and minds in poetry and prose. Some are vengeful; some are angry, and others are repentful. But all of them express themselves freely from their own point of view.

David Berkowitz, the notorious murderer known as the Son of Sam, shares his testimony of how God touched his life, one cold and lonely evening, in his prison cell. Today, David Berkowitz is known as the Son of Hope.

You'll meet inmates with no hope of ever seeing daylight again. Their words are set in poems and prose in Beyond The Razor Wire.
