I just finished reading this one. VERY interesting look at life on the inside of Alcatraz as written by former inmate Jim Quillen. Also poignant story of his life as well. Easy read, read it in 2 days, but worth reading. This copy is also signed by the author.

Helpful Score: 3
This book is very well written and easy to read. Mr. Quillen provides us with the details of his life including his ten years at Alcatraz and his life afterwards. While reading about his time at Alcatraz I felt like I was there as he described things so vividly. I was most impressed by the part about his life after prison. We learn about the struggles he faces to find a job but how he was able to change his life around.
