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.

On July 19, 2001, following a conviction for perjury, international bestselling author Jeffrey Archer was sentenced to four years in prison. Prisoner FF8282, as Archer is now known, spent the first three weeks in the notorious HMP Belmarsh, a high-security prison in South London, home to murderers, terrorists and some of Britain's most violent criminals.

On the last day of the trial, his mother dies, and the world's press accompany him to the funeral. On returning to prison, he's placed on the lifer's wing, where a cellmate sells his story to the tabloids. Prisoners and guards routinely line up outside his cell to ask for his autograph, to write letters, and to seek advice on their appeals.

For twenty-two days, Archer was locked in a cell with a murderer and a drug baron. He decided to use that time to write an hour-by-hour diary, detailing the worst three weeks of his life.

When A Prison Diary was published in England, it was condemned by the prison authorities, and praised by the critics.
