Confined to a world of poverty and mis-education, Quawntay perceived crime and drug dealing as his own opportunity for success and freedom. However, when he fell victim to America’s War on Drugs and was arrested in a marijuana sting just weeks after the conception of his daughter, he realized that he’d made a wrong turn in life. Faced with the horrible prospect of spending the rest of his life behind bars, and worse, not being able to be a responsible father, his only perceivable solution was to escape. Literally.
Chasin’ Freedum is an informative, touching, and amusing story that provides not only details of Quawntay’s brazen ingenious escapes, but also a glimpse into the mind and heart of an intriguingly wise fool, whom the media has dubbed a ladies’ man and escape artist, desperately pursuing freedom the wrong way.
If you’ve watched and enjoyed the documentary Break Out, based on Quawntay’s escape from prison, you’ll really enjoy this book.
