In this unusual story about a Harvard student becoming a prison librarian in Boston many lessons are learned, both by the author a well as the inmates.  Sadness mixes with humor as Steinberg reflects on his experiences, including being robed on the street by a former prison library patron.  The book reminds us how libraries have always been havens for the soul, including those behind bars.
