Razor-wire Dharma : A Buddhist Life in Prison
Razor-Wire Dharma is an eloquent, enlightening, and utterly inspiring personal story of how one man found Buddhism--and real, transformative meaning--despite being in one of the world's harshest environments. Some of these stories are hilarious, some are harrowing, but all express Buddhist wisdom as vividly as any practitioner could hope to do--in the unlikeliest of places. In prison, the choice of staying true to principles often requires jeopardizing life, safety, and the few small comforts available to try to do what's right.

"Calvin Malone is, if not the most remarkable practitioner, certainly one of the most remarkable. He sits his practice, he walks his practice, and he lives his practice in an environment where practice is beyond difficult. Calvin knows when to speak, how to speak skillfully, and when to remain silent. He knows when to lead, and when to make way for others to exercise and develop leadership. He is a 'teacher without portfolio' in an environment that desperately needs teachers."--Ven. Rowan Conrad, Ph.D, Dharma Teacher in lineage of Thich Nhat Hanh
