The Prologue to "Zek" may be the finest bit of prison writing I have ever encountered.
The novel uses astonishing detail to steadily draw the reader into a routine day in the life of a prison abyss, a world where the struggle to maintain one's humanity clashes with a desperate fight for survival. For those interested in learning about what the prison experience does to the human spirit, it is not to be missed.
