A Good Place?
Graham, William W.
Writing On the Edge, v12 n1 p87-91 Fall-Win 2000-2001
Notes that the idea that prison is a good place for writers is not easily dismissed. Explains that imprisonment forces a certain focus and a reassessment of one's life and actions. Concludes that a lot of writing from prison happens in spite of the situation, not because of it. (PM)
