    Here are a couple of Canadians for you:

    Roger Caron, author of Go-Boy, a mémoir

    Stephen Reid, author of Jack Rabbit Parole, an autobiographical novel

    Both served long stretches in prison.

    I read Go-Boy and it was pretty harrowing, i.e., excellent. I can't remember whether I read Jack Rabbit Parole (but I did read Jackrabbit Moon, by Sheila Arnopoulos, and it is to be avoided).
