Poetry. "Once and for all, CANDLES BURN IN MEMORY TOWN will hopefully shatter all clichés about prison writing. It is impossible not to be struck by the sheer joy, the concern for humans and animals, which all these poets express. The poems themselves are some of the most crafted I've seen published lately, and many of these poets speak with a rare, ironic tone last handled well in the poems of John Berryman. What is even more important, their experiences and perceptions can now be shared by anyone willing to listen" -Rochelle Ratner.
