Hardback. A book about men in prison. The author was provided with a room of his own inside a wing of a high-security prison (Lewis Prison's C Wing), containing 50 life-sentence prisoners, 50 long-termers and another 50 short-termers, and a pass which enabled him to wander at random within the prison walls, talking to whomever he liked. The book brings together an unusual mix of voices : murderers, fraudsters, armed robbers ('kings of the wing'), the born again, some wrongly imprisoned men, as well as the 'trusties', 'nonces', and 'grasses'. Not forgetting the screws. An intimate study of prisoners and prison life. 179pp. 8vo. h/back. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Browned pp., covers F. in Vg+ dw.
