On March 11, 1994, nineteen-year-old Matt Wright was sentenced to
serve forty-one years in the Washington State Department of
Corrections for first-degree murder. Wright shares his honest
perspectives and sometimes shocking personal experiences as he
takes a fascinating look into the real world of prison life.
Wright pulls no punches as he tells about an institution
manipulated by drugs, politics, violence, gangs, and fear, where
every action is scrutinized. He doesn't sugarcoat his vivid
descriptions about long nights, hollow cells, strip searches, and
predators, yet he also manages to show the good side of prison by
sharing lessons learned, betterment programs offered, and heartfelt
actions by generous staff. By including the stories of five
prisoners with different backgrounds, Wright proves that each
inmate experiences prison life very differently. Finally, he shares
the touching words of his now-deceased sister, Katie, who provides
a firsthand account of the trauma she suffered after his arrest and
the strength she subsequently gained as a result.
One day Matt Wright will go home, and this will not be his
life. For those about to enter prison and for their families they
left behind, Wright has provided the information needed to help
ease into a new life behind walls.
