9780140232257: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member

At the age of 11, Kody Scott was initiated into the L.A. gang the Crips. He'd just done battle with the enemy, pumping eight blasts from a sawn-off shotgun into a group of rival gang members. From then on, Kody channeled everything into gang life - earning the gang name of Monster. Written from his prison cell, this autobiography is an account of the violent life of Monster Kody Scott.

Product Description:

Written in solitary confinement, the author's memoir of 16 years as a gangbanger in Los Angeles makes palpable the despair and decay of America's inner cities and gives eloquent voice to one aspect of the black ghetto experience.

Review:

"A shockingly raw, frightening portrait of gang life in South Central Los Angeles today." -Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" "I propose to open my mind as wide as possible to allow my readers the first ever glimpse at South Central from my side of the gun, street, fence, and wall." -Monster Kody Scott ""Monster" is unquestionably one of the most disturbingly authentic triumphs of the human spirit ever executed in print." -"Los Angeles Times"
