Connecticut prison officials reverse ban of Wally Lamb book


Connecticut’s Department of Correction is reversing its decision to remove from circulation a novel by author Wally Lamb, who volunteers at one of the state’s prisons. The agency said Thursday that ‘‘She’s Come Undone,’’ a best-selling novel, came up for review after a Manson Youth Institution inmate ordered it. Correction officials said the purchase was temporarily denied and the book was removed from circulation at the York Correctional Institution library due to the content’s ‘‘graphic nature.’’ After further review, it was returned. Lamb, who lives in Connecticut, leads a writing workshop for female inmates at York.
