RARA-AVIS: Jack Vance; Prisons

Jack Vance's paperback mystery TAKE MY FACE (1957 or so) is a noirish book (not hardboiled, though). It came under an alias Peter Held.


As for the prison writers, what about Frank Elli and THE RIOT? I have it, but haven't read it.

There's also a GM paperback as by Tarn Scott, DON'T LET HER DIE
(1957), which reads like the authors (there were two of them) might've been ex-convicts.
