Glad I got over being too snobby to listen to audio books!

    Doing Time: For the prison writers whose work is included in this anthology, it means more than "serving a sentence"; it means staying alive and sane, preserving dignity, reinventing oneself, and somehow retaining one's humanity. For the last quarter century the prestigious writers' organization PEN has sponsored a contest for writers behind bars to help prisoners face these challenges. The contest honors the best short stories, plays, essays, and poems among hundreds submitted annually by men and women nationwide.

    I recently have found myself writing to someone incarcerated and thought I would listen to this collection of poems and stories written by the incarcerated. I knew there would be some interesting and compelling stories but I was absolutely floored by some of the writing. Really excellent. And the way it was strung together and narrated only added to the experience. I was so sad when it came to an end!
