About the book:
This is the memoir of Zeke Caligiuri, who grew up in South Minneapolis in the 1990s when the city was dubbed “Murderapolis.” Currently in prison, Zeke’s story is a clear-eyed account of how he got from there to here, how a boy who had every hope went from dreaming of freedom to losing it, along with nearly everything and everyone he loved.
"An intimate, searing, and important document that makes no excuses for its subject's life-choices and is all the more powerful for its honesty." —Joyce Carol Oates
