In this memoir, Nicholas Catanoy recreates the diary that he kept as a young cadet in Romania when he was imprisoned by the invading Russians. "Notes on a Prison Wall" explores the imprisoning effects of 20th century beliefs. Catanoy breaks down the old generic categories; he asks us to read backwards as well as forwards--to find that humanity lies in the fissures of present-day society.
