The Marshall Project is “a nonprofit news organization that seeks to create and sustain a sense of national urgency about the U.S. criminal justice system.”  Their team of journalists also curate a relatively short list of books about criminal justice.  Among the titles are classics such as, A Time to Die: The Attica Prison Revolt by Tom Wicker and newer works such as Michelle Alexander’s, The New Jim Crow.

We’re happy to report Zek: An American Prison Story now sits among these titles, and is currently the only book among them written by someone serving time.  If we’re going to talk about criminal justice, we want everyone at the table. Congratulations, Arthur.  And thank to the Marshall Project for this honor.
