Reviews

"This book is absolutely essential for every personal library. This book is an adventure in understanding in Empathy." Gwendolyn Brooks

"Lynette Seator’s Behind the Wall Poems is both haunting and beautiful. Her words capture the feel of cell doors closing and the rage and poetry in the souls of men as they learn to survive behind bars. There are stories here, stories to make you want to run away from this world that has declared so much humanity inhuman. Listen. The walls are closing in on all of us." Luis Rodriguez, author of La Vida Loca, Always Running: Gang Days in East
