The Slammer focuses on the experiences of a prisoner released from a maximum security jail after serving an eight-year term. The prisoner has spent nineteen of his twenty-three years in institutions, including time in an orphanage and a boys' home. The narrative examines the difficulties experienced by ex-prisoners upon release, particularly adjusting to their freedom, finding work, and attempting to go straight.
