"A free man in free man's clothing, because the authorities feared for my safety as an inmate, I lived in Soledad for a week - not a true prisoner, but as much a captive of the mind-smothering machine as the 3000 people who live and work there. Prison is never as simple as the tin cup tantrums and zoo cage loathing people insist on visualizing. . ."
Description:Findley's first article about his experiencing living in California's Soledad prison for a week. As the excerpt suggests, he did not masquerade as an inmate but lived among the inmates nonetheless.
