Prison Cell Drawing, undated

This hand-drawn prison cell was done by Knight. While it was just doodled on a scrap of paper, he held onto it, and it is an interesting physical artifact that shows how much his time in prison was critical to Knight’s work as a writer. He never forgot that time in his life and parts of it forever shaped his work, even as he moved away from overtly writing about his autobiographical prison experiences.
