Hilarious and horrifying,
This review is from: You Got Nothing Coming (Paperback)
Stark, scary and hilarious, this is the blistering account of one man's descent into the belly of the beast and how he somehow survived. Lerner's humour in the face of the horror confronting him is outrageously funny, but he never loses sight of the madness and injustice of the penal system. The charcter sketches are priceless: sociopaths and losers, sadistic guards and deranged inmates are given such life that they transcend cliche.
This is probably among the finest ever books, fact or fiction, about life in 'The Big House', and never fails to inspire, entertain and outrage.
