About this book
Subtitled, "A Brit In America's Toughest Jail". Attwood tells of how he, a well-educated young Englishman, survived 6 years in Sheriff Joe Arpaio's harsh US prison system.
Using a golf pencil sharpened on a cell wall, Shaun Attwood wrote one of the first prison blogs, "Jon's Jail Journal", excerpts of which were published in "The Guardian". This book gives an account of the time Shaun spent submerged in a nightmarish world of gang violence, insect infested cells and food unfit for animals.
