Hey, Graeme Wood:

I just finished reading your article. I know the focus was meant to be an educational, factual look into prison gang dynamics – and it was – but more than that, it felt like a thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Almost all of it was vividly described, and where you weren’t able to get the full story, I got an in-depth sense of how sophisticated these groups are.

I’ve never been so entertained by something so researched. Usually it’s one or the other. Fantastic work.
