Infectious Injustice is an autobiography that details ‘The True Story of Survival and Loss against Corruption, the COVID-19 Disaster inside of San Quentin, and the Dumpster Fire that is Known as Mass Incarceration’. It is best suited to mature readers owing to explicit content and adult references throughout. Penned by author Justin Cook, the work is a powerful, firsthand account of life inside San Quentin, one of the most notorious prisons in the United States. Through his gripping narrative, Cook takes readers on an intense and often harrowing journey, providing a unique perspective on the flaws and injustices of the American prison system.
Author Justin Cook’s honest and powerful work serves as a shocking exposé of the issues within San Quentin and the larger problem of mass incarceration whilst also telling a tale of resilience, endurance, and keeping one’s dignity despite injustice. What I really admired about the tone of the narrative was the fact that Cook doesn't hold back, addressing the corruption, oppression, racism, and fear that are prevalent in the prison environment. He combines a dry and often dark humor with an impressive sense of stoicism to paint a vivid picture of the inmates' daily struggles, including hunger strikes, malnutrition, and the threat of COVID-19. I found the resilience and camaraderie among the inmates particularly touching, especially when they are faced with adversity and often have nobody but one another to turn to. Cook's tale is a testament to the human spirit's endurance, loyalty, and quest for dignity in a system that often treats prisoners as less than human. Overall, Infectious Injustice is not just a well-penned story of survival but also a call to action, challenging the preconceived notions about the incarcerated and the flawed approach to rehabilitation within the prison system. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
