The Glass Cell by Patricia Highsmith

Rife with overtones of Dostoyevsky, The Glass Cell , first published forty years ago, combines a quintessential Highsmith mystery with a penetrating critique of the psychological devastation wrought by the prison system. Falsely convicted of fraud, the easygoing but na??ve Philip Carter is sentenced to six lonely, drug-ravaged years in prison. Upon his release, Carter is a more suspicious and violent man. For those around him, earning back his trust can mean the difference between life and death. The Glass Cell s bleak and compelling portrait of daily prison life?and the consequences for those who live it?is, sadly, as relevant today as it was when the book was first published in 1964.
