Best prison literature as Tome Raider is jailed


20000-years-in-sing-singWith notorious British rare book thief William Jacques, the Tome Raider to some, jailed once again, AbeBooks is showcasing some of the finest prison literature ever published. Considering prison is a place no-one wishes to visit, there is a vast number of books about it and some of the biggest names in the business have addressed the theme of imprisonment. John Cheever, Norman Mailer, Kurt Vonnegut, Vladimir Nabokov – lots of different perspectives from the food on death row to the fear to a football team consisting mostly of killers. See the list.
