Editorial Reviews


“This is one of my favorite books, which I have often referred to in my teachings. I am delighted that it will have a wider publication now so that more people can read these wonderful heartfelt stories.”—from the foreword by Pema Chödrön
“It is a privilege and joy to read Jarvis Masters’s account of his spiritual struggle to find freedom at the edge of life. Everyone should read this book.”—Robert A. F. Thurman, author of Essential Tibetan Buddhism
“An inspiring, even exhilarating teaching on the life of a peacemaker in the midst of rage and despair, and in the shadow of the execution chamber.”—Bernie Glassman, founder of Zen Peacemakers International
“As he finds some measure of freedom inside a maximum security prison, Jarvis teaches me how to find freedom in my unfenced life.”—Susan Moon, coauthor of What Is Zen?

“Above all, the revelation Masters asks readers to contemplate is the acceptance that 'all of us live in a prison' of cyclic existence and suffering. This is a remarkable testament of personal transformation and spiritual awakening.”—Publishers Weekly

“This book is a must-read for all those who believe in prison reform and should be required reading for those who do not. It is a gentle reminder that all voices matter, that all stories deserve to be heard, that all life is precious, and that hope is real.”—The Tattooed Buddha
