While reading Prison Riot, I was struck by how similar this story is to the classic Melville novella, Billy Budd. Of course, the latter was written in a much more stilted voice, and was built on Biblical allegory – but the thread of the story is very much the same.

Here we have a power struggle between a cruel and sadistic Corrections Lieutenant, and a fair minded but ineffectual Warden. The victim in that power struggle ends up being the innocent – the powerless everyman,whom in the Melville book was represented by Billy, and in Prison Riot is represented by B.J. and his friend, Giant.

Where the analogy breaks down however, is that Billy Budd was fiction.

Suspension of disbelief is not necessary when the writer actually lived through the hell of the California prison system. As a student of literature, I can think…

Glenn Langohr’s Prison Memoir Got Another Great Review From a Criminal Justice Professor at U.C. Irvine

Professor Keramet Reiter, an Associate Professor in Criminal Justice at U.C. Irvine came across Glenn Langohr’s books about prison and asked for an interview. Glenn Langohr agreed on one condition, that she have her students read and review it.


Glenn Langohr found out that Professor Reiter focused on the prison side of the Criminal Justice system and asked her to read his book Underdog, A True Crime Thriller of Prison Life, the fourth book in the series. Glenn Langohr has written eight books about the drug war and prison life after serving time in prison for drug charges. He started writing from a cell in solitary after a prison riot and now speaks to students and civic groups about his writing and history.

In Underdog, A True Crime Thriller of Prison Life, Glenn Langohr points out the flaws in the gang validation process that keeps inmates house in solitary confinement indefinitely. He takes his own experience in riots and the issues that cause them and takes the reader on a journey through the process.

B.J and Damon are two White inmates who get involved in a gang war in a California maximum security prison. The prison administration realizes B.J’s sentence is up and they falsely blame Damon for organizing the inmates and use his gangland tattoos to send him to the Super Max at Pelican Bay.


“This is a page-turner of a read about life inside the California prison system, told from the perspective of an experienced and thoughtful former prisoner, who describes remaining unaffiliated with the various prison gangs, but collaborating and mediating among them to maintain peace on the prison yards.This first-hand account of the California prison system is not only interesting, but provides a useful counterpoint (and compliment) to more academic accounts of prison life.” U.C. Irvine Professor Reiter

Former Prisoner Glenn Langohr is Speaking to a Criminal Justice Class at UC Irvine About His Books and Solitary Confinement

Former Prisoner Glenn Langohr is Speaking to a Criminal Justice Class at UC Irvine About His Books and Solitary Confinement on Oct 30 at 3 pm. 

To see a complete list of Glenn Langohr’s drug war and prison novels go here-

Glenn Langohr plans on talking about one of his books, Underdog, that the students were required to read an excerpt from. While in prison, for just being involved in a riot to survive, Glenn Langohr gained experience in solitary that showed him many prisoners are falsely labeled shot callers or influencers, that lead to false validation to SHU housing without end.

Glenn Langohr is also speaking with Ms Dolores Canales whose son has been in the Pelican Bay SHU for over 10 years. Glenn plans on sharing with the students his take on solitary confinement in relation to the 8th Amendment where it intersects with cruel and unusual punishment. He also plans to talk about how the U.S. needs to find better ways of dealing with petty crimes that have the prison population bursting at the seams. He wants the students to see that in California, prisons are breeding bigger criminals by locking up low level offenders, where in prison, an addiction is bred into an affliction much harder to escape, where gangs and violence are the calling cards.
