Summary "Two years ago, the author of this book, a distinguished journalist well known in yachting circles, was sentenced to eighteen months imprisonment on a charge of fraud. He served this sentence first at Wormwood Scrubs and then at Maidstone. As a highly educated man, he was able not only to experience to the full but to set down a literate, detailed and brutally realistic account of exactly what happened to him, which will bring a shock of horror to every civilised man or woman who reads it. His was no unique experience. What he records is what every prisoner, young or old, undergoes, on whom the doors of a courtroom close after sentence has been pronounced."--Dust jacket blurb.
