    Story
    (368)

    As a pastor working in a neighborhood with the highest concentration of murderous gang activity in Los Angeles, Gregory Boyle created an organization to provide jobs, job training, and encouragement so that young people could work together and learn the mutual respect that comes from collaboration.

    Jeremy says: "Perhaps the best book I've read in years."
    "view-altering book!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tattoos on the Heart to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book brought me to tears and laughter many times. It has changed my view of my fellow people. Boyle, in his perfect delivery of every story and certainly every hilarious punchline, sheds light on a slice of life, very foreign to my own, with such compassion and depth of insight that it is in fact tattooed on my heart.


    Which character – as performed by Gregory Boyle – was your favorite?

    All the various gang members speaking.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    One small 12 year old boy gets a girlfriend who's 16. "G" gulps, but the kid says "It's okay G, she's short." This moment, once I stopped laughing my head off, communicated the honest, innocent absence of middle class moral concerns. Stories like this, as well as the numerous heartbreaking, senseless deaths show how the gang members live in a thought-system of their own that takes great love to shift in a new direction.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for doing that work and telling us, Gregory Boyle.
