An interesting modern, first person account of life behind bars in a British prison. The author comes across as honest and forthcoming about the glamorous life of a criminal prior to bring arrested and how he learns to cope with an incarcerated existence. What drew me to this book was his escape from the prison but in the end this was but a small incident in this book filled with violence.
