Shondaland Review and Interview

I had a great discussion with Scott Neumeyer for Shondaland. An excerpt:

“The Holly is a triumphant achievement that fully brings the iceberg of criminal justice issues to the surface and exposes it for all to see. Not only is it one of the most important nonfiction books to be published in recent years, but it should be essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the extent to which this country’s criminal justice system is currently broken….It is a 300-plus-page condemnation of police procedures, gang-related justice missteps, and systemic racism that led not only to Terrance Roberts shooting Hasan Jones, but to so much gang violence over so many years.”
