Synopsis

Through a series of e-mail messages, Letters from Alcatraz invites the reader inside a man's heart and mind. As C.J. comes of age in San Francisco, he meets and falls in love with Diana. Diana is a beautiful young woman who from the tender age of one lived on Alcatraz Island. He spends the following forty years living two separate lives, the life that he shares with Diana; the other life that he fears Diana will find out about someday.

C.J. struggles as he indulges in a lifestyle that is rife with sex, drugs, and rock & roll; a lifestyle that leads to trouble at each and every turn. His other lifestyle, the one he shares with Diana, is what he desperately wants to protect. Over the course of a year, C.J. finally opens up to a complete stranger, sharing his most intimate thoughts and memories as well as his deepest and darkest secrets.

The story that unfolds is brutally honest, compassionate, and heartfelt. As you find yourself rooting for the bad boy, you will also find yourself questioning everything that you thought you knew about emotions and deceit.
