Prison author Stephen Reid dies, after the "Oceans 11" jobs early in his life, before jail



Ian Austen has an obituary of author Stephen Reid in the New York Times.  


What’s noteworthy is that Reid became an established author while an inmate in prison. Two of his books on Amazon are “A Crowbar in the Buddhist Garden: Writing from Prison” (from Thistledown, 2003) and “Jackrabbit Parole” (Quality Paperback, 1986).


The author was born in Ontario and his “smash and grab jobs” were usually or always without real weapons.

This is not a topic that I would have embraced before, personally speaking.
