Prison Voices is an inmate-written book, made to encourage reading and writing in prisons. Within these pages twelve convict-authors reveal the dramatic details of their lives and their struggles. Some of the pieces are uplifting and hopeful; others breathtaking, steeped in remorse. At times the words we read are most shocking in the precision of the author’s self-reflection; at other times exasperating in what they reveal of the author’s self-destructiveness.
