About Escape from Alcatraz by J. Campbell Bruce: A true crime classic, Escape from Alcatraz recounts the history of the infamous prison on Alcatraz Island and the many men who risked their lives trying to escape it. Bruce's book brings to life the grim, gruesome conditions of life in lockup on Alcatraz, and the prisoners who lived there-from notorious gangster Al "Scarface" Capone to robber Frank Lee Morris, the architect of Alcatraz's most audacious escape. More than a tale of prison break, Escape from Alcatraz is a scathing indictment of a penal system that strives for dehumanization, rather than rehabilitation, of its prisoners.
