Edward Bunker knows about the Animal Factory. Having spent his formative years behind bars in some of this country's most notorious prisons, his knowledge came naturally. Luckily for us, instead of submitting to the dark abyss of prison life, Bunker invested his time in writing. The results are some of the most vivid portrayals of convict life, both in and out of prison, that I have ever read. Ostensibly a tale of two men trying to survive their time in San Quentin, Animal Factory is a searing indictment of a society that would rather see men transformed into animals than into rulers of the free world. This book is available through interlibrary loan using the recently updated Commonwealth Catalog.
