Softcover. Uncorrected Proof copy. A ground-breaking book about what life is really like behind bars. In 1985, the poet Ken Smith was invited to spend 2yrs. as Writer-in-Residence at Wormwood Scrubs prison. His brief was to encourage prisoners to express their condition and their feelings in words. Smith developed a close relationship with several of the prisoners, one of whom 'Dave Wait', emerged as a very talented writer. One section of the book - 'Living in My Head' - is by him. For the most part, the book describes, in a painfully honest and unsentimental way, the life of prisoners from those on remand to those serving life sentences. Includes Jeremy Bamber and Paul Hill. With Glossary. 237pp. softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Sl. sunned Vg+ softcover and, unusually for a Proof, in a G++ dw, which is ill-fitting (sl. too big) and sl. frayed.
