Extremely powerful saga! “Fox” grew up in an environment that led to petty crime, just to survive. While locked up he’s convicted of murder, but is innocent, and spends 40 years in solitary confinement. This is a story about institutionalized racism and inhumane conditions, but also about hope, and his unbreakable spirit and remaining sane, about friendship and inspiring and helping others. A superb memoir!
