The Pariah's Syntax: Notes from an Innocent Man
Buy new or used from an indie through our partner Biblio:
From a nine-by-eleven cell in a maximum-security prison, Byron Case, a one-time child prodigy wrongfully convicted of murder at age twenty-three, began blogging. Composed on an electronic typewriter, his dispatches take many forms-richly textured in-the-moment vignettes, poems, gleefully recollected anecdotes, satirical commentaries on the penal system, and more. But in whatever shape Case writes, his steady voice comes through, clearly and distinctively. Evocative even at its most reserved, poetic even at its most prosaic, undefeated even at its most melancholy, The Pariah's Syntax: Notes from an Innocent Man collects some of Case's best personal writings from prison. It is a lush, variegated assortment: forty pieces of prose and poetry (fifteen never before published), each a shining example of this young writer's talent, resolve, and above all, humanity.
