A major American novel, and arguably the finest work of literature ever to emerge from a US prison, On the Yard is a book of penetrating psychological realism in which Malcolm Braly paints an unforgettable picture of the complex and frightening world of the penitentiary. At its center are the violently intertwined stories of Chilly Willy, in trouble with the law from his earliest years and now the head of the prison's flourishing black market in drugs and sex, and of Paul, wracked with guilt for the murder of his wife and desperate for some kind of redemption. At once brutal and tender, clear-eyed and rueful, On the Yard presents the penitentiary not as an exotic location, an exception to everyday reality, but as an ordinary place, one every reader will recognize, American to the core.

From the Inside Flap:

"A handful of authors have portrayed the human condition of prison life with the indelible stamp of authenticity--Dostoevski, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Brendan Behan, and Genet are among them. Now in the same genre comes Malcolm Braly's On the Yard. . . His eye is true and his writing faultless." --The Times, London
