Life on the Rock 9. August 2003
Von Jason Robey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ever wonder what it would be like to do time in Alcatraz? To live behind bars with some of the most notorious gangsters that ever lived? If so, then "On the Rock" is definitely your book.
Alvin "Creepy" Karpis, a former Public Enemy Number One who spent 26 years at Alcatraz, tells us firsthand what it was like. The reader is given an insider's perspective on every prison fight, strike and attempted breakout that occurred at Alcatraz between 1936 and 1962. Karpis had strong opinions about his fellow inmates, like "Machine Gun" Kelly ("a bullsh*tter"), Robert "The Birdman" Stroud ("a b*stard") and Al "Scarface" Capone ("completely insane"). It's a gritty story told with a fair share of gangster lingo and foul language. Karpis was quite a character, very intelligent and completely remorseless, and his personality comes through - raw and unfiltered - in "On the Rock". If you have even a passing interest in gangsters or prison life, you won't be disappointed.

Super Star at the Super-Prison 13. Juni 2002
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Alvin Karpis is the only man to survive earning the sobriquet "public enemy #1". After a whirlwind time as one of the most infamous outlaws in the lawless days of the1930s, Karpis was captured alive and sent to Alcatraz. His twenty-five years in America's first super-prison is the subject of this memoir.
Built as the government's answer to the 1930's wave of kidnappings and bank-robberies, Alcatraz was to be an escape-proof prison housing only the elite of the criminal world. It was certainly proof that 'crime doesn't pay' especially for the American taxpayers.
Karpis' memoires of his life on the rock showcase his amazing memory and are full of his experieces with the infamous residents of the super-prision. He either has a photograpich memory or his ghost-writer did a great deal of research.
While this is an interesting and informative book, rest assured that Karpis spends a great deal of time making sure that he always presents himself in the most favorable light even if the truth has to suffer.

An exciting historical account of life in Alcatraz. 26. April 1998
Von cesarterriquez@juno.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
It's a meticulous and gripping story told by Alvin Karpis, Public Enemy #1, who spent 25 years in Alcatraz. He describes a true picture of what life was really like inside the country's most notorious prison. His diary format chronicles everything from prison food to homosexual relationships. What adds authenticity to Karpis' account are his candid revelations that delve into his own sexual encounters, involvement in escape plans and even hinting of murdering an inmate. A GREAT BOOK!
