Review:

'The way in which humane values emerge not from the idealised women who are supposed to represent them but from Kane's fellow-prisoners is genuinely distinguished. And the structure, counterpointing prison's sterile rhythmwith the energy of life outside, emphasises the starkness of the choice before him' Andro Linklater, The Spectator

'Prisons material are all too often transformed into prisons metaphorical, but the theme is rarely as well done as it is here... Bennett's republished debut mixes thriller with prison diary; the portrayal of Kane is subtle, sorrowful and nicely low key' Guardian

'A bleak but fascinating portrait' Times Metro

Book Description:

The disturbing and thought-provoking first novel from Ronan Bennett, which was shortlisted for the Irish Times Aer Lingus Prize
