520    Acclaimed journalist Conover sets a new standard for 
       reporting when he applies for a job as a prison officer. 
       So begins his odyssey at Sing Sing, once a model prison 
       but now the New York State's most troubled maximum-
       security facility. Acclaimed journalist Ted Conover sets a
       new standard for bold, in-depth reporting in this first-
       hand account of life inside the penal system. When 
       Conover's request to shadow a recruit at the New York 
       State Corrections Officer Academy was denied, he decided 
       to apply for a job as a prison officer. So begins his 
       odyssey at Sing Sing, once a model prison but now the 
       state's most troubled maximum-security facility. The 
       result of his year there is this remarkable look at one of
       America's most dangerous prisons, where drugs, gang wars, 
       and sex are rampant, and where the line between violator 
       and violated is often unclear. As sobering as it is 
       suspenseful, Newjack is an indispensable contribution to 
       the urgent debate about our country's criminal justice 
       system, and a consistently fascinating read.
