A compelling autobiography that chronicles drug addiction, descent into crime, imprisonment and recovery of Ray Materson. Materson is a self-taught embroiderer who came to recovery while in prison for drug-related crimes. Using yarns salvaged from socks and a hoop made from a Tupperware bowl, he began to create small works of needlework folk-art. His works illustrate the book, and range from rich, beautiful images to sports to graphic depictions of drugs and crime.
