Paranoia & Heartbreak: Fifteen Years in a Juvenile Facility

by

Paranoia & Heartbreak: Fifteen Years in a Juvenile Facility Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For fifteen years, Jerome Gold worked as a rehabilitation counselor in a prison for juveniles in Washington state. Throughout his time there, he kept a journal of his experiences with youths who had been incarcerated for murder, kidnap, assault, rape and other sex offenses, auto theft, burglary, and selling drugs. What started as a journal designed to relieve stress turned into the evocation of one man's nuanced perspective on a unique group of young people. Paranoia & Heartbreak tells Gold's personal story of coming to terms with people who have crossed over to the other side of their own humanity. Writing from ample experience and with unflinching compassion, Gold brings the reader to see these deviants-and through them, in some slanted way, our whole society, with an unexpected intensity.
