Resumen:

Wanted :

Wanted follows a restless young man from the sunny suburbs of his youth to the darker side of society in the rainy Northwest, where he finds the direct spiritual experience he's been seeking while volunteering as a night-shift chaplain at a men's correctional facility. The jail becomes his portal to a mysterious world where gang members soon dub him their "pastor." As he comes to terms with this uncomfortable title - and embraces the role of a shepherd of black sheep - his adventures truly begin.

Hoke shares sublime tales - sometimes comic, other times heartbreaking - of sacred moments in unlikely situations: singing with someone who attempted suicide in the jail's isolation cell, dodging immigration and airport security with migrant farmworkers, and fly-fishing with tattooed gangsters. Set against the misty Washington landscape, Hoke's writing takes us with him as he gains and loses friends within the prison system, and even faces his own despair - as well as belovedness - on the back of a motorcycle racing through Guatemalan slums.

In these stories of "mystical portraiture," Hoke offers a new vision of the forgotten souls who have been cast into society's dumpsters, helping us see that beneath even the hardest criminal is a fragile de-sire to be wanted.
