A memoir of a Louisiana native who has to do a jail stint- 18 months I think - in a federal prison which is shared with the last lepers in the US living together in a federal run facility.

The lessons he learns in the end are cheesy, sort of Disneyesque. Everything he learns is sort of pat. If I'd taken the time to think about it I probably could have predicted the results. Also it could have been written better. In the end he thanks a bunch people among them a team (not just one writer) helped him with the book. Not to say a lot on this topic but let's just say--they could have helped him more...

But the topic is very interesting as are the people, both the prisoners and the people with Hanson's disease (lepers).
