On 9th August 2001, twenty-two days after Jeffrey Archer was sentenced to four years in prison for perjury, he was transferred from HMP Belmarsh, a double-A Category high-security prison in south London, to HMP Wayland, a Category C establishment in Norfolk. He served sixty-seven days in Wayland and during that time, as this account testifies, encountered not only the daily degradations of a dangerously over-stretched prison service, but the spirit and courage of his fellow inmates...Prison Diary Volume II: Purgatory is an extraordinary work of non-fiction, where Archer reveals what life is like inside the walls of Britain's prisons. Praise for A Prison Diary Volume I: Hell 'The finest thing that Jeffrey Archer has ever written' - Independent on Sunday 'Compelling reportage ...Jeffrey Archer raises these diaries to the standards of a prison Pepys by being such an assiduous recorder of fellow inmates' secrets' - Jonathan Aitken, Mail on Sunday

“Good Read”

Enjoyed this book as much as the first Prison Diary, plenty of interesting charachters. Photos and drawings inside the book were an added bonus and helped to visualise the charachters in their surroundings.
