Twenty-four hours is a lot of time in prison, and here is a moment to moment guide of how each one goes by. A Day in Prison shows what life is like for prisoners from morning roll call to lights out. It tracks the many ins and outs of prison culture and provides a comprehensive look into the dynamics that define inmates' daily interactions with each other, prison guards, and prison administrators. It gives a full sense of the challenges—small and large—presented to inmates as they try to survive each day. The book is structured like an actual day in prison, hour by hour, tracking where in the prison a prisoner would most likely be and what they would most likely be doing. It brings a clear sense of the unique environment that is a prison and makes sense of it for the reader, step-by-step. Based in the author's own experience, being incarcerated for eleven years, it is as realistic a guide to life in prison as any reader could have.
