Ashley Newman is a New man, a New author. He has moonlighted as a painter and has always been one beat short of a song, but writing for him is like breathing.
Caged Birds Don’t Fly is inspired by his custodial journey in his early life, expressed by poetic means. Ashley hopes that this collection could be read to understand what living in prison is actually like minus the hard person persona it carries.
Ashley has left such lifestyle of consequence behind him and is moving forward in life. His writing and family have enabled him to do so.

Caged Birds Don't Fly
by A Newman
Prison, a time served, a glance at living behind bars from an artistic eye and a poetic voice. Describing everyday ordeals and ideals that have to be compensated for. How perspectives and perceptions change after crossing a social boundary.
