"... a stunning portrayal of everyday life in the Big Q. Buzzy Martin’s book depicts a not so glamorous account of a city of lost souls. The only glimpse of hope for inmates caged like animals is the two hours they spend strumming the guitar and singing at the top of their lungs with Buzzy. For a close-up view of a dead-end street, young "juvenile hall gang bangers" might read this powerful book about life in San Quentin Prison. Having worked with juvenile offenders for over 29 years, I believe these true life stories grab the attention of the reader immediately and illustrate the shocking reality
of inmates in a prison culture who are preyed upon and changed for life."
