For ten thousand dollars, he recklessly agreed to help sail a sixty-foot yacht loaded with a ton of hashish from the Virgin Islands to New York City, where he and his partners sold the drug until federal agents caught up with them. For his part in the conspiracy, Gantos was sentenced to serve up to six years in prison. In Hole in My Life, this prizewinning author of over thirty books for young people confronts the period of struggle and confinement that marked the end of his own youth. On the surface, the narrative tumbles from one crazed moment to the next as Gantos pieces together the story of his restless final year of high school, his short-lived career as a criminal, and his time in prison. But running just beneath the action is the story of how Gantos-once he was locked up in a small, yellow-walled cell-moved from wanting to be a writer to writing, and how dedicating himself more fully to the thing he most wanted to do helped him endure and ultimately overcome the worst experience of his life+-+143589928538211ocn154296417com20020.07Gantos, JackHole in my lifeJuvenile worksBiographyThe author relates how, as a young adult, he became a drug user and smuggler, was arrested, did time in prison, and eventually got out and went to college, all the while hoping to become a writer+-+27551848252464ocn074941126book20070.06Parker-Rock, MichelleJack Gantos : an author kids loveJuvenile worksBiographyInterviewsDescribes the life and accomplishments of the author known for his books with such characters as Rotten Ralph, Jack Henry, and Joey Pigza+-+7102751125371ocn507358000com20060.29Something about the authorBiographyBibliographyCovers individuals ranging from established award winners to authors and illustrators who are just beginning their careers.
