GO-BOY! can be read as a major social document which cries out for long–overdue prison reforms in Canada. It's a major contribution to prison literature and criminology. But GO-BOY!, like much concentration camp literature, can also be read and appreciated as a forceful witness to survival in hell. Caron has been there and come back to life whole, human and still fighting.
