“ The authors of these narratives adopt another and, for certain purposes, a better method. Their approach to the subject is concrete and existential. Posed in this way, the ancient questions take on a new urgency, a more distressing significance. For they have been transplanted from the dim respectable regions of abstract thought to the vivid world of particular experience.” — Aldous Huxley
About the Author
Holley Cantine and Dachine Rainer, along with artist Lowell Naeve, were confined in federal prison as conscientious objectors during World War II. Naeve was a participant in the infamous 1943 inmate strike to desegregate the Danbury Prison mess hall, an event that led Danbury to become the first federal prison to abolish segregation.

However, once having made that very big adjustment, I found the book fascinating reading. This book tells true, first hand stories of the men who did this and what their lives were like during this time. Obviously it is not for everyone, but it is a very interesting and forgotten piece of history. (Please excuse the lack of details in this review. It has actually been several years since I've read the book, but I did feel there was a lack of good reviews that really explained what this book was.)
