Who Will Write the Catch 22 of Prison Life?

leave a comment »

If I were a better writer I would describe the prison system in a much more creative way. The model I admire most is the Joseph Heller novel Catch 22. His satire of military life made me laugh more times than any comedy film I’ve seen. Someone, I hope, will write a similar satire of the American prison system.

Michael Santos, a long-term federal prisoner who writes about the prison system at, Huffington Post, and his Prison News Blog.
