Softcover. When the young Lawrie More passed Mt Eden prison on his way to school, little did he imagine that 20yrs of his life would be spent behind such forbidding walls. He would eventually become senior prison chaplain of New Zealand and leave his indelible stamp on the system and those involved in it - 'inside' and 'outside'. Through the eyes of an unorthodox and colourful personality we look 'inside' and meet criminals sent down for murder, rape and robbery and a prostitute who demands attention. Here is a mirror on the human face of the system, where anger and suspicion grow in the hot-house of isolation and punishment, and human dignity is left at the prison gate. Illus., Conclusion, Appendix and Bibliog. 271pp. trade size softcover. From the library of true crime writer, Wilfred Gregg, with his personal b/plate. Fep has been clipped, lightly browned edges o/w Vg.
