Light in a Dark Place is a collection of prison writings and enlightened observations by Darryl Robert Schoon
. Maxine Hong Kingston and Marshall Thurber, among others have encouraged the publication of his writing. Composed during a 10-year prison sentence, it affirms our relationship to life and God while questioning justice and democracy in America today. A mosaic of essays, stories, and poetry, it gives a picture of one man's journey to find light in a truly dark place. Light in Dark Place also includes the story of Howard Hughes' former banker, a story that details the apparent embezzlement by members of the Reagan White House of millions of dollars of Saudi money intended for the Afghan freedom fighters.
