Critic Applaud

“Partly funny, partly urgent and wholly unnerving—a mashup of ‘House of Cards’ and ‘Orange Is the New Black’”

—The New York Post

“Part personal memoir, part academic treatise, part political polemic, “Mr. Smith Goes to Prison “is required reading for anyone interested in learning more about life on the inside, the history of crime and punishment, and the issue of criminal justice reform.”


“With empathy and insight, Smith’s book takes on one of the country’s most complicated and fraught policy issues while also providing a gripping memoir of an experience all of us would prefer to miss.”
