WASHTENAW COUNTY JAIL and Other Writings is first and foremost a gritty prison journal by the young poet David Herfort, who served time for drugs as a college student at the University of Michigan in the turbulent early 1970s. It is also a delicate poetry collection, The Poems of Horatio Pepper, and the poignant European journal and letters of an American hitchhiker who was killed in a car accident in Spain in November 1972. The book was edited 30 years after Herfort's death by his half-brother, the poet Michael Ruby.
