Tales told from behind prison bars.

Strategy is important. Do you stamp your mark and demand respect from the get-go? Or is it better to keep yourself to yourself and hope to fly under the radar? You could always immerse yourself in books to pass the days. Or why not make use of the time: take the opportunity to learn a new language, or requalify. Tunneling types will find plenty to do. It’s important to keep busy. But remember to watch your back. Check out these tales from the inside for bird’s-eye views of prison life.
