Paperback. The remarkable sequel to the author's 'A Sense of Freedom'. From the ages of 12 to 38 Jimmy Boyle lived with locks and keys, walls and bars. Labelled 'Scotland's most violent man' and serving a life sentence for murder, his inside story 'A Sense of Freedom' shocked the establishment - and the public. He continues that story, from early days in Barlinnie Prison's new Special Unit to eventual release. It's the author's own raw chronicle of his struggle to progress and reform. Hope shines through at last - in his emergence as a sculptor; in his relationship with the woman he married whilst still in prison; and finally in his remarkable transformation from hardened criminal to committed social reformer. Illus. with drawings. 303pp. p/back. From the library of true crime writer Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Lightly browned pp. o/w Nr. F. with no creasing to covers.
