Mandela Conquers the Cut: Essays from Prison

Lomax wrote extensively poetry, fiction, essays and eventually became the editor of the prisons monthly magazine, The Conqueror. Collecting several of Lomax's essays from his seven-year editorship Monster in the Maryland State Penitentiary, his earliest (1972) extant work, a number of short essays from 2004/05 and other later reflections on his experiences following his release in 2006. The pieces show a thoughtful seriousness for his and others who find themselves members of these communities, situation and predicaments. or Barnes & Noble
