This unique text provides accurate descriptions of prisons and prison life, written by a prisoner sentenced to life, who uses the pseudonym "K. C. Carceral" to hide his identity for protection.

This narrative presentation of such topics as prison violence, friendships, sexual mores, and serving time includes graphic language and situations.
