Chandra Bozelko's Up the River Anthology projects many voices. But it is Bozelko's voice that harmonizes the discordant and disconcerting fragments of our criminal justice system. She examines her life as a prison inmate in this riveting poetry collection. Up the River presents a deadly theater. Bozelko writes about personal, damning, damaging experiences through the eyes of the supporting players of prison life. Her characters act out their roles on this rigid, often tyrannical stage. Full of heart, Bozelko's collection leaves us to wonder not, what did she do? but rather, what have we done?
