FROM THE PUBLISHER - THE ANIMAL FACTORY goes deep into San Quentin, a world of violence and paranoia, where territory and status are ever-changing and possibly fatal commodities. Ron Decker is a newbie, a drug dealer whose shot at a short two-year stint in the can is threatened from inside and outside. Heís got to keep a spotless record or itís ten to life. But at San Quentin, no man can steer clear of the Brotherhoods, the race wars, the relentlessness. It soon becomes clear that some inmates are more equal than others; Earl Copen is one of them, an old-timer who has learned not just to survive but to thrive behind bars. Not much can surprise him-but the bond he forms with Ron startles them both; itís a true education of a felon. . Bookseller Inventory # 22662

Synopsis: Now a film directed by indie film star Steve Buscemi, THE ANIMAL FACTORY tells the story of Ronald Decker, who is put away in San Quentin on a minor drug dealing charge, where he is befriended by Earl Copen, member of the White Brotherhood, just one of the many race gangs that abound within prison walls. Bunker writes of the sordid, violent and lawless prison life with a great literary quality and the knowledge gained by spending over 25 years in prison. """"A gripping and harrowing read"""" - Daily Mail """"A classic"""" - Time Out

Review: "Edward Bunker's work possesses integrity, craftsmanship and moral artist with a unique and compelling voice - a vigorous and important writer." -- William Styron
