Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The author, a former guard at Sing Sing prison, looks back on his rookie year in the prison as he attempts to balance basic human decency with the rigors of the prison system.

Review:
"Together these characters reveal a story of absurd and unconscionable comedy, the narrative that is the history of corrections in this country. It's a history as memorably encapsulated here as in any writing I know of....NEWJACK coheres as a moving indictment of our ways of punishing."

Daniel Bergner, New York Times Book Review, 05/14/2000

Book Description: Alfred A. Knopf, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Vintage Books ed. 203 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. Acclaimed journalist Ted Conover sets a new standard for bold, in-depth reporting in this first-hand account of life inside the penal system. When Conover’s request to shadow a recruit at the New York State Corrections Officer Academy was denied, he decided to apply for a job as a prison officer. So begins his odyssey at Sing Sing, once a model prison but now the state’s most troubled maximum-security facility. The result of his year there is this remarkable look at one of America’s most dangerous prisons, where drugs, gang wars, and sex are rampant, and where the line between violator and violated is often unclear. As sobering as it is suspenseful, Newjack is an indispensable contribution to the urgent debate about our country’s criminal justice system, and a consistently fascinating read.
