Summary
"This deeply-wrenching tale of coming of age in a family destroyed by drugs and suicide takes the reader into the sweaty locker rooms of the boxing circuit, the seamy pimp bars of Oakland's underworld and the cold-hard prisons of the California systme of corrections. Buffalo Nickel is an autobiography that reads like a well-crafted novel in its recording of the excessive human costs of drug addiction"--Book jacket
