Equal Justice Under Law. This promise appears on courthouse doors across the land. But it by no means describes what goes on inside them. Equal access to justice is one of America’s most proudly proclaimed principles. And one of its most frequently violated. In theory, the United States is deeply committed to individual rights. Yet few Americans can afford the legal representation necessary to exercise them. Only one percent of the nation’s lawyers serve our poorest citizens, translating to one lawyer for every 1,400 poor people. The nation with the world’s greatest concen

Not since On the Road has a book been more thoroughly of the road. Unlike Kerouac’s novel, however, this book was literally written on the road in Gudding’s own car, on pad and paper while driving. Rhode Island Notebook is the handwritten account of one driver s journey to happiness in the face of grief. This book-length poem chronicles the break-up of a family and the separation of a father and daughter, while at the same time recording the rise of jingoism in the United States in the moments before and during the invasion of Iraq.
