With I'll Fly Away, Lamb offers readers a new volume of intimate pieces from the York workshop. Startling, heartbreaking, and inspiring, these stories are as varied as the individuals who wrote them, but each illuminates an important core truth: that a life can be altered through self-awareness and the power of the written word.
Pretty good read - kind of hard to read at times but it's a short and quick book to get through because it's short stories. Some stories are the prisoners as children, some as teens, and some while in prison. I wanted to get it because I love Wally Lamb. He didn't write the stories but helped in editing the material.
