Two things to read on prisons and books


A couple of pieces which are worth reading in respect of the current prisons book controversy are this report at the Independent on the practical difficulties in obtaining and sharing books in prison and this superb and spot-on Telegraph column by Mary Riddell.


Both articles provide detailed and much-needed context for this issue.

  1. The Mary Riddell piece is very good, providing you don’t read the comments under it. Not good for faith in your fellow people.
