KIRKUS REVIEW

A human interest document, the inside story of sixteen years in three prisons, by a ""lifer"" whose sentence was commuted. Those years took in the old prison regime, the transformation under Thomas Mott Osborne, and the moderation under Lawes. There are glimpses of the other convicts; there is an interesting picture of the daily round. Not a sensational book, though it well might have been, but an intelligent contribution to the growing library of prison first hand evidence.
