A unique and edgy cookbook, Prison Ramen takes readers behind bars with more than 65 ramen recipes and stories of prison life from the inmate/cooks who devised them, including celebrities like Slash from Guns n’ Roses and the actor Shia LaBeouf. Instant ramen is a ubiquitous food, beloved by anyone looking for a cheap, tasty bite—including prisoners, who buy it at the commissary and use it as the building block for all sorts of meals. Think of this as a unique cookbook of ramen hacks. Here’s Ramen Goulash. Black Bean Ramen. Onion Tortilla Ramen Soup. The Jailhouse Hole Burrito. Orange Porkies—chili ramen plus white rice plus ½ bag of pork skins plus orange-flavored punch. Ramen Nuggets. Slash’s J-Walking Ramen (with scallions, Sriracha hot sauce, and minced pork). Coauthors Gustavo “Goose” Alvarez and Clifton Collins Jr. are childhood friends—one an ex-con, now free and living in Mexico, and the other a highly successful Hollywood character actor who’s enlisted friends and celebrities to contribute their recipes and stories. Forget flowery writing about precious, organic ingredients—these stories are a first-person, firsthand look inside prison life, a scared-straight reality to complement the offbeat recipes.

Imagine you are in prison for a crime you did not commit. You cannot believe what has happened to you and you're certain the system will correct the error. Five years later and you're still behind bars. Are you still certain? What would you do to survive day after week after month locked up with some of the most dangerous people you'd ever meet? People who have been wrongfully convicted tell stories of hope, redemption, and how they continued to believe the system that put them behind bars would eventually find them innocent. From prison yard gardens to contraband cooking to family visits, "Pruno, Ramen, and a Side of Hope" gives you a glimpse of life inside some of America's prisons and shares how each exoneree survived, and in some cases thrived, and prevailed against overwhelming odds.
America seems presently fascinated by prison culture and the inner workings of what happens behind clinked doors. With TV shows creating binge-watchers of us all, and celebrities piquing public interest as they end up behind bars, Americans seem to enjoy a good gawk at prison life. Each year, more than 1.3 million visitors still trek out to Alcatraz Island, one of the most famous prisons in the world. And why shouldn’t they be curious about prison? We as a nation currently incarcerate more people per capita than any other country, and our prisons are notoriously rough, violent, and overcrowded. At the same time, we love our food, take pictures of it, post it socially, and discuss our foodie favorites. Rarely do we consider the food experiences of those for whom sustenance is more difficult to obtain, particularly those incarcerated, where choice and access is severely limited. Prison food is often everything to prisoners. It is the only marker of time throughout the day. Food becomes commerce in the microeconomies behind prison walls. It is often the only source of pleasure in a monotonous routine. It creates sites of community when prisoners ban together to create recipes, but also becomes a site of discord when issues surrounding fairness and equity arise in the chow hall. Prison Food in America offers a high-level snapshot of the fare offered behind bars, its general guidelines and regulations, fascinating stories about prisoners and food, and the remarkable and varied ways food plays a role in the fabric of prison culture.
An inmate shares 46 of his best recipes made with food purchased from the prison canteen and shares some tips about prison life.
The author describes her travels to such locales as Cuba, Lebanon, and Costa Rica, and the romances she has along the way.

After the success of Prison Ramen, author Gustavo "Goose" Alvarez, returns with an even more enduring tale."Goose's new book, The Pawn, represents only the latest in a rich and ongoing series of tales that he has to share. In it, he tells a story that was in many ways inspired by real struggles and sorrows, compromises and triumphs. Like a Westside Dostoyevsky, Alvarez translates some of his own troubling experiences and observations to the page through the lens of fiction, but the author's personal voice is never lost in the process." -Dr. Michael Gibson-Light.
