Each day we saw the outside world in all its splendour, and each day that view served as a reminder that we had wasted and ruined our lives.
Jim Quillen, AZ586 - a runaway, problem child and petty thief - was jailed several times before his twentieth birthday. In August 1942, after escaping from San Quentin, he was arrested on the run and sentenced to forty-five years in prison, and later transferred to Alcatraz.
This is the true story of life inside America's most notorious prison - from terrifying times in solitary confinement to daily encounters with 'the Birdman', and what really happened during the desperate and deadly 1946 escape attempt.

a very good read and insight into the criminal life and how it is to be locked up in the in escapable prison
første del er rigtig god. de sidste 3/4 dele er dræbende kedsommelige.

Spændende at lytte til, giver et godt indblik i hvordan et af verdens vildeste fængsler fumgerede og hvordan det har været at være der!
