John Barker was arrested in 1971 and sentenced to ten years imprisonment at the Old Bailey for his part in the ’Angry Brigade’ conspiracy trial. It was the longest trial in English legal history.

This prison book is different because it does not just center on the author but offers a variety of views of different convicts, including Irish militants. Stories of life, or rather of anti-life.
