Evidence

"I am not ashamed to confess that during those weeks of imprisonment I too wept both by day and by night; not loudly or clamorously, but silently and with an intensity of misery that wasted my strength and filled my brain with hideous thoughts. The first library book issued to me was ""David Copperfield""; and with the incipient ego-centrism of the budding criminal I imagined I could detect similarities between Dickens"s early experiences and my own. For many nights I cried myself to sleep with ""David Copperfield"" hugged close, as if in him I had found a fellow sufferer."
