Hear a Recent Radio Interview With Ken
From Inside Prison 


"Whether you've lived inside the walls of a prison or never seen the interior of a courtroom, this book is essential reading. Written in a straightforward style with unflinching honesty, Mother California is one of those rarities that will stay with you for years. It is life behind bars, revealed by a man on the long journey toward consciousness in a world that disdains it. Forget everything you thought you know about prisons and prisoners. This is the real thing." Kim Wozencraft, author of the novel Rush.
