""I paced my cell with a book in one hand and a knife under my
mattress. I knew I could have a long and happy life with a book in
my hand or I could have a miserable short life with the shank that
was in the mattress."
"-Jimmy Santiago Baca "Stories from the Edge "enriches and extends
Jimmy Santiago Baca's critically acclaimed memoir, "A Place to
Stand." Early stories elaborate on his travails as an abandoned
child in an orphanage. Later stories draw on Baca's post-prison
life as a writer and his ongoing work with struggling adolescents,
prisoners, and society's dispossessed. Centered around conflicts
and life-altering choices, Baca's gripping personal narratives will
resonate with adolescents and adults alike. Learn more about the
