Full Circle

Day 234: San Francisco

Michael Palin - Full CircleBoth Jim and Glenn are, in a way, American success stories. Hardened criminals who did their time here and are now forgiven and, in varying degrees, famous. Both have written books about their experiences and, down in the Alcatraz Gift Shop, among the mugs and the T-shirts and the videos, Jim Quillan signs his Memoirs of Life Inside.

'One of the primary reasons I wrote the book was to tell the reality of prison to kids. We have this image through the media that it's something glamorous and macho, but you know what prison really is, it's tears and sorrow and heartache and loneliness, bitterness, insanity, murder, suicide and death. That's what prison's all about.'
