Where Excuses Go to Die

2013 INDIES Winner
Silver, Autobiography & Memoir (Adult Nonfiction)

For a guy who justified his moral superiority by using a fake gun to rob corporate (never family-owned) bookstores, prison was quite a wake-up call. Yet for Nelson, the ensuing journey wasn’t about rape, riots, and rotten food. By focusing on the humor, heart, and humanity that exists even inside, he defied penitentiary defeatism, bigotry, and cell house rules to become his own inmate and his own man. "Insightful and hilarious…an extremely talented writer." —Henry Rollins
