Editorial Reviews


“Jerome Gold looks into the darkest corners of contemporary life, telling us without mercy exactly what he finds. The . . . author of The Inquisitor, Publishing Lives and The Negligence of Death, Gold creates intense, socially conscious, and emotionally evocative stories that remind us that we choose to deny unpleasant realities at the cost of enabling them to continue.” — Judith Roche, The Stranger

“The dominant theme – violence – becomes a virus, conveyed down through the generations or between friends, siblings and lovers . . . . A whiff of dark humor dances around the macabre and disquieting ‘How It Can Happen,’ a list of the ways people have been known to die . . . . Another acridly funny poem is ‘Who’s Going to Kill Me’ . . . Gold lampoons some entirely deserving subjects. On the whole, Prisoners is intense, evocative, insightful . . . . It is not for sissies." — Barbara Lloyd McMichael, Tacoma News Tribune

About the Author

Jerome Gold is the author of thirteen books, including the fiction collection, The Moral Life of Soldiers, and Paranoia & Heartbreak, a memoir of the years he spent as a rehabilitation counselor in a prison for children. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
