Abstract provided by inner book cover.
"A Call to Action is a poignant and uncompromising analysis of the criminal/justice system which spends millions of dollars annually, and controls the lives of approximately one million inmates--of which nearly two-thirds are Black and members of other non-white groups. Of particular concern is the over-representation of Black men who traverse the criminal justice system as though it was especially designed for them."
A collage of memoir-type reflections, particularly musings on love and personal relationships, exaninations of religious faith and spirituality, and reflections on the death of the author's loved ones. Very much a personal zine.
(Abstract courtesy of seventenbishop.com) Art is not created by the satisfied. The satisfied look out on the morning and accept the world as it is thus negating the desire for judgement. Like a sniper at a turd parade Daniel Joshua Nagelberg has the ills of his world in the crosshairs. Part scrutiny, part reticence, part fable, part rant, "Man Falling Backwards Down Stairs" is an outstanding exposition of a dissatisfied urban life. Daniel Joshua Nagelberg is at an imaginary bar with Bukowski on one side and Algren on the other quietly observing the rest of the villians have their way with each other. In the present climate of suspicion and fear, "Man Falling Backwards Down Stairs" is a welcome window of honest dynamic emotions. Much like Rumi's treaties of lust, debauchery and understanding through intoxication Daniel Joshua Nagelberg's visions of a wicked world gone wild are engaging, startling and often terrifying in their familiarity.
