Through their raw, powerful writing, these emerging writers artistically explore the experiences that led them to criminality and incarceration. Featuring Perin’s own life story of being raised by a criminal father, this collection reveals the interconnectedness of people who live on both sides of the criminal fence and the challenges for former prisoners of re-establishing productive, meaningful lives after their release. As the writers’ authentic voices ring out from past and present prison experiences, they call on us to shine a light into the shadows of our own lives and begin a process of healing that benefits us all. Only the Dead Can Kill: Stories from Jail is made possible by a grant the Creative Work Fund, a grant making program that supports Bay Area artists’ developing new works through collaborations with nonprofit organizations.
