Behind These Walls:An Unusual Story Of Prison Life

BookBucks Review and collect 20 points.
Tex, a prison habitue, is in once again -- this time to do a long stretch. His familiarity with the perversions of prison cautions him to protect Red, a 16 year old lifer. Through the years a strained intimacy grows up between them with Tex and his friend, Clyde, playing father roles. In the midst of rampant homosexuality, attemped escapes, etc., the attractive boy is sheltered from the temptations which fester there. Finally, through the sacrifices of Tex, he is released, free to pursue a normal life, unhampered by effects of prison. Tex, on the other hand, commits suicide, since his mission in life has been accomplished. Why do unsophisticated novelists play around with abnormal psychology?
