Jerome Gold is a Vietnam war vet who, for the last several years, has worked as a counselor in a prison for youth offenders. This ruthless, powerful book - his sixth - is a collection of poetry and prose narratives in the voices of ex-soldiers destroyed by war and ex-children destroyed by the culture that abandoned them. Written in the voice of a Vietnamese POW, it ends: "None of us believed anything. We thought only about the food we would

Prisoners is a collection of short narratives told in different voices, about what holds us captive: war, violence, trauma, history, belief, the fear of death. The narratives are thematically linked. The dominant themes of this compact but insightful book are violence and its effects: the ways in which these effects persist, their replication from generation to generation. Much of this book is told through the voices of gang youth, other parts by veterans of a number of wars. Stylistically indebted to such poets as Louis Simpson, Larry Levis, and Ai, in Prisoners Mr. Gold nevertheless establishes his own territory in terms of both content and tone. The dominant theme - violence - becomes a virus, conveyed down through the generations, or between friends, siblings, or lovers... A whiff of dark humor dances around the macabre and disquieting 'How It Can Happen.' a list of ways people have been known to die... Another acridly funny [piece] is 'Who's Going to Kill Me'... On the whole, Prisoners is intense, evocative, insightful... It is not for sissies-Tacoma News Tribune
