Luis Rodríguez on It Calls You Back

Luis Rodríguez tells of his journey from drug-abusing gang member to writer and activist. His memoir It Calls You Back: An Odyssey through Love, Addiction, Revolutions, and Healing tells the story of Rodríguez’s attempt to start over, at 18, after his final stint in jail and nearly a decade of gang life. He describes his challenges as a father, and his difficulty leaving violence, crime, and addiction behind.
