In 1926 South Africa's celebrated short story writer, Herman Charles Bosman, shot and killed his step-brother in an argument. He was sentenced to death and this is where his story begins. Cold Stone Jug is an account of his years serving time in South Africa's notorious Pretoria Central Prison, beginning in the 1920's. Despite the hellish conditions, Bosman uses his razor-sharp wit and exemplary skills as a short story writer to describe the most fascinating tales of prisoners and prison life. At times poignant, depressing and hilarious, Cold Stone Jug manages to provide a window into a forgotten world as seen by a writer whose wry sense of humour carries you through the horror of his predicament. In the end, it is Bosman's personal journey that resonates long after the last page.
