Reviews

Praise for My Brother Moochie:

"With a keen understanding of systemic racism...My Brother Moochie delves into a rarely explored side of the criminal justice system: the families of the perpetrators...powerful." --New York Times Book Review

"Bailey's memoir is a triumph, a painful indictment of American inhumanity woven with threads of grace and love...an extraordinary book about crime, punishment, redemption, and the empowerment that can spring from adversity...nuanced, original, and remarkably clear-sighted." --The Guardian

"An elegant memoir that speaks to the inequities of the criminal justice system and the damage done to family and community when loved ones are locked away...Bailey tells his story with a raw honesty [and] boldly examines the fault lines etched so sharply in our current cultural landscape." --USA Today
