Finding Freedom by Jarvis Jay Masters
Book DescriptionIncarcerated in San Quentin at the age of 19 for armed robbery, Jarvis Masters was accused four years later of participating in a conspiracy that resulted in the death of a prison guard. Finding Freedom is a collection of prison stories -- sometimes shocking, sometimes sad, often funny, always immediate -- told against a background of extreme violence and aggression. Masters' commitment to nonviolence leads him more and more into the role of peacemaker as he tries to put compassion into action. We see Masters meditating amid chaos and squalor, touching the hearts and minds of those around him.

In 1990, then-23-year-old African-American Jarvis was sentenced to death in the state of California. Using the only instrument available to him--a ball-point pen filler--Jarvis has written an astounding memoir that is a testament to the tenacity of the human spirit and the talent of a fine writer.
