Overview

These days, when we hear of "prison memoirs" we think of hardened criminals who, while paying their debt to society, learned how to write the story of their lives from their cells. Slammer Days is not one of those books. The two books in this present volume, 'Men Into Beasts' and 'Home Away From Home' by George Sylvester Viereck and Jack Woodford, are the prison memoirs of hard-working, professional writers who wound up in prison for different reasons, but who felt compelled to write of their experiences in the big house after they were released. They use their writing skills to show how the system can beat a man down and how a non-criminal mind can persevere and eventually triumph. With an introduction by Richard A. Lupoff.
