      Often, prison record is an indelible mark that impacts ability to establish a normal life significantly and substantially. Many prisoners report that it is difficult to be “anonymous” in the modern age. Many ex-prisoners report that people use the internet to search for details about them routinely. 3. “Life kept on moving” “Honestly the worst thing that happened? Life kept on moving outside of the walls. It doesn’t inside. All my friends went on trips, made memories, met new people, and I missed all of it. Lock up was generally pretty tame, as I kept to my own and was in a low risk tank (perks of being a year-old in jail for weed).

      This is really a brilliant read. A very good prison story! I really can recommend reading this book. It was hard to decide whether to give this book four or five stars! I originally gave it four stars, but after a few days decided to give it five stars. Certain events described in this book probably will stick for the rest of my life/5().   As someone who regularly writes for publications from prison, I’m often asked what the legal parameters of such conduct are. Typically, this discussion starts with a prisoner’s family member contacting me, and expressing that they have been told that their incarcerated loved one is not allowed to publish any articles, blog posts, or books because they are in prison.

      De Profundis, by Oscar Wilde One of the longest letters ever written, De Profundis is fascinating and oned for “indecency” in a less-enlightened time, Oscar Wilde’s stint in prison was unpleasant, filled with hard labor, isolation, and constant supervision, but he was eventually allowed writing materials when the warden decided it might be therapeutic.   And I can honestly tell you that since getting out, I’ve been completely clean. I don’t go anywhere near illegal substances and try to live a Christian life. If you are wondering what it is really like doing hard time, there’s a book called the Federal Prison Handbook. I honestly wished I had read this before getting sent up the river.
