520    The numbers are staggering: over the past twenty years in 
       Chicago, 14,033 people have been killed and another 
       roughly 60,000 wounded by gunfire. What does that do to 
       the spirit of individuals and community? Drawing on his 
       decades of experience, Alex Kotlowitz set out to chronicle
       one summer in the city, writing about individuals who have
       emerged from the violence and whose stories capture the 
       capacity--and the breaking point--of the human heart and 
       soul. The result is a spellbinding collection of deeply 
       intimate profiles that upend what we think we know about 
       gun violence in America. Among others, we meet a man who 
       as a teenager killed a rival gang member and twenty years 
       later is still trying to come to terms with what he's 
       done; a devoted school social worker struggling with her 
       favorite student, who refuses to give evidence in the 
       shooting death of his best friend; the witness to a 
       wrongful police shooting who can't shake what he has seen;
       and an aging former gang leader who builds a place of 
       refuge for himself and his friends.
