Three Rooms Press presents Launch Pad 10 – The official NYC launch of BAD: The Autobiography of James Carr
About BAD: The Autobiography of James Carr
An unapologetic, brutal memoir from notorious 60s career criminal and Black Panther James Carr. BAD covers Carr’s life from his first arrest at age 10, through merciless stints in San Quentin, through his post-incarceration murder in San Jose in 1972. A savage indictment of the American penal system. Includes a new introduction by his daughter, Gea Carr, and an afterword by his widow, Betsy Carr.
