"Old slew-foot Nietzsche. Bombed out of his gourd by the nowhereness of it all". pp31

By the time he was forty had spent nearly seventeen years in prison for burglary, serving time at Nevada State Prison, San Quentin, and Folsom State Prison. It is not clear at which prison each book was written and for how long in particular he spent in each prison. For this reason the reference is for 17 years in total, in three separate prisons, producing three separate novels. The particular prisons assigned to each novel are based on chronology of their authorship and specific references given in each text. http://www.nybooks.com/nyrb/authors/8083
