The story of Maurice Tyree’s experience of incarceration and transformation, as told through the letters and poems he wrote
Maurice Tyree went to prison thinking that life was disposable. He came out knowing that he had a story to tell.
This is his story, told through letters and poems written during and since his time in prison. An honest and reflective narrative, this epistolary autoethnography provides a glimpse into the experience of a person who committed and served time for pre-meditated murder, and used his time incarcerated to reflect on and transform his life.
Ideal reading for students of Incarceration or Carceral Studies, Criminal Justice, Social Work and Family Studies, Sociology, Literature, and related courses, Mr Tyree offers first-hand insight to the experience of the US criminal legal system for an African-American man.
