How two authors and a crew of wayward inmates found their voices on the page, on the yard, and in their hearts.
"H-Unit" is the story of two authors who start up their own Creative Writing course behind the walls at San Quentin State Prison. It is a good-news tale of hope and purpose seen from the inside but told from the outside. Written in a crisp and unorthodox first-person-plural narrative style, the book follows a roster of wild and zany characters, whose lives are transformed by the written word as incarcerated inmates and later as parolees struggling to stay straight.
