This book is the only collection of poems and prose by prisoners on America’s Death Row. It lets us hear voices from that terrible darkness, where 2,750 people face execution. For these authors, their writing is a lifeline and a link to the outside world. They use it to evoke the desolation of imprisonment without hope, and to argue passionately against the inhumanity of capital punishment.
