About this item
Literary Nonfiction. While many people find hope and a new identity behind prison walls, they lose it a few steps past the prison gate when faced with seemingly insurmountable barriers that prevent them from fulfilling their potential. In effect, these men and women are consigned to a "second prison" that curbs rehabilitation, diminishes success, denies them the opportunity to make meaningful contributions, and minimizes their human value. The texts gathered in LOCKED OUT: VOICES FROM AMERICA'S SECOND PRISON, edited by Jesse Wiese, are interviews with former prisoners as they relate the ongoing consequences of incarceration long after their debt to society has been paid.
