Why The Jailbird prays is an inspirational, humorous, heart touching and evangelistic tool reading, which takes the reader outside looking in behind prison walls and jail cells to get an idea of what jail life is like and understanding an inmates way of living. This book will take you into the minds of the inmate while educating you and giving you an inmate's point of view, life story and testimony. This reading will empower, educate, encourage, enlighten and enhance ou individually. You will find humor in this book that will amuse you; however, you will be saddened by some of the inmate's life experiences, childhood growing up and abuse that they encountered. In the beginning of the book, you will read Jailbird Poems Prison Poetry as an appetizer to prepare you for the reading of this book. Each poem is an intro to each story presented in the book, and the poetry reveals my experiences in jail. In addition, the poems exploits the inmates past, bizarre and unorthodox behavior and their individual dysfunctions and issues. Jail Bird Poems Prison Poetry sets the tone for the book. I encourage you to purchase the soundtrack to the book titled Mama I Love You. The combination of the book and the soundtrack is great artistry; however, it bridges the gap between this well written reading and the music composition brings the book alive.

Had Upton Sinclair not written a single book after The Jungle, he would still be famous. But Sinclair was a mere twenty-five years old when he wrote The Jungle, and over the next sixty-five years he wrote nearly eighty more books and won a Pulitzer Prize for fiction. He was also a filmmaker, labor activist, women's rights advocate, and health pioneer on a grand scale. This new biography of Sinclair underscores his place in the American story as a social, political, and cultural force, a man who more than any other disrupted and documented his era in the name of social justice. Upton Sinclair: California Socialist, Celebrity Intellectual shows us Sinclair engaged in one cause after another, some surprisingly relevant today--the Sacco-Vanzetti trial, the depredations of the oil industry, the wrongful imprisonment of the Wobblies, and the perils of unchecked capitalism and concentrated media. Throughout, Lauren Coodley provides a new perspective for looking at Sinclair's prodigiously productive life. Coodley's book reveals a consistent streak of feminism, both in Sinclair's relationships with women--wives, friends, and activists--and in his interest in issues of housework and childcare, temperance and diet. This biography will forever alter our picture of this complicated, unconventional, often controversial man whose whole life was dedicated to helping people understand how society was run, by whom, and for whom.
