#amreading Dreaming Inside: Voices from Junee Correctional Centre Volume 4

Author Name: 

A wonderful collection of writings from a range of inmates in the Junee Correctional Centre. Heart-felt, confrontational, often extremely raw, this is the sort of collection of writings that you need to take your time with, dip in and out of, re-read and think about. More to come on this wonderful volume.

#amreading Cyanide Games, Richard Beasley
