Tiyo Attallah Salah-El’s “Pen Pal” is lovingly reviewed by David Gilbert, himself in his 41st year of a life sentence.

When guards at SCI Dallas destroy his property, threaten his life, assault his person, all while ranking officials look on approvingly, it is not simply Andre who is under attack, but the rights and lives of prisoners everywhere.
