Ralph Hamm continues his string of amazing books, all written from prison. Locked up since 1968, Mr. Hamm is (as far as he knows), the longest serving prisoner who did not kill anyone, and was convicted of his one and only offense as a juvenile. This entry in his oeuvre establishes that the State of Massachusetts has done the world a disservice by keeping this man locked--up long past the time doing so made any sense....this depriving us of a truly unique and powerful voice.
The first part of the book (after an introductory poetry section, focuses on his (futile) attempts to win parole, which involves reciting the details of his crime. Powerful stuff which needs to be read by all. Then he turns to a,little more poetry, and finally, a play Ralph wrote which I would LOVE to see produced sometime. In it, Mr. Hamm lays out the frustrations caused by the completely arbitrary, yet extreme, power that guards wield over ve ritually every aspect of Mr. Hamm's life.
In sum, this is a powerful read.
