From the Publisher"…an excellent history for anyone interested in the history of prisons and prison reform in America."
- Publishers Weekly
"America’s most notorious prison is also America’s most mysterious. Denis Brian’s book figuratively opens the gates of Sing Sing and permits readers to learn the tales locked inside the confines of this famous prison and meet the remarkable array of inhabitants, keepers, and luminaries connected with its two-century history."
James McGrath Morris author of The Rose Man of Sing Sing and Jailhouse Journalism
"Provides a penetrating, unforgettable look into the horrors as well as the acts of kindness and generosity that make the true story of Sing Sing so compelling."
Sister Helen Prejean author of Dead Man Walking
"It is impossible to read this book and still be in favor of capital punishment."
Frederik Osborne, Grandson of Sing Sing Warden
Thomas Mott Osborne, and President of the Osborne Association,
which works to improve the criminal justice system.
