Buck is a powerful memoir of how a rebellious, precocious kid educated himself through the most unconventional teachers—outlaws and eccentrics, rappers and mystic strangers, ghetto philosophers and strippers, and, eventually, an alternative school that transformed his life with a single blank sheet of paper.

But things fell apart and a little more than a decade later MK was back in America, lost in a fog of drugs, sex, and violence on the streets of North Philadelphia. Now he was alone—his mother in an asylum, his father gone, his older brother locked up in a prison on the other side of the country—and forced to find his own way to survive physically, mentally, and spiritually, by any means necessary.
