My 8,344th Day


While I served 26 years in prison, I read books to learn how to serve time productively. The Russian author, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, inspired me. To help readers understand a day in a Siberian prison, the author fictionalized the life of Ivan Denisovich. I wrote this book to show readers the strategy I used to make it through a typical day during my 23rd year. It shows how my commitment to preparing for success upon release influenced all my adjustment decisions, from when I woke in the morning until when I went to sleep.
