Summary, etc.:
With a poet's gifted ear, a novelist's sense of narrative, and a journalist's unsentimental eye, Mitchell S. Jackson candidly explores his tumultuous youth in the other America. The book takes its name from the calculations Mitchell and his family made to stay alive and to keep safe in their community. It was a small black neighborhood in Portland, Oregon blighted by drugs, violence, poverty, and governmental neglect.
