A Prison Diary

On July 19, 2001, following a conviction for perjury, international bestselling author Jeffrey Archer was sentenced to four years in prison. A Prison Diary, Purgatory and Heaven are the memoirs of his life as Prisoner FF8282--from the first three weeks of his incarceration, which he spent at the notorious high-security prison HMP Belmarsh, home to murderers, terrorists and some of Britain's most violent criminals; to his transfer to a medium-security prison, where he continued to experience the degradations of the overstretched prison system and witness the spirit and courage of his fellow inmates; and finally to his eventual release on parole. The books present a harsh critique of the British prison system and rare insight into the lives of prisoners.
