This was a well-read and well-written book. While Conover spends a little bit too much time complaining and attempting to pull "deep meaning" from the book, he manages to create a good narrative.
Conover is a good storyteller and someone that is unfamliar with his other books, esp. Newjack, should look those up before listening to this one.
This collection was full of very similar poems that seemed to take up a lot of time. While the prose was interesting, it felt like listening to some similar stuff. Some authors didn't seem to add a lot of perspective to gang life, making the anthology lack perspective overall.
