Críticas:

"A searing indictment of the controversial penal tactics of Sheriff Joe Arpaio - who revels in the title of 'America's Toughest Sheriff'" (BBC News website)

"A gripping account of Attwood's time among lethal gangsters . . . and of living in fear amid sewage and cockroaches" (City AM)

"A tale of brutality and a lesson in behind-bars etiquette" (Manchester Evening News)

"Makes The Shawshank Redemption look like a holiday camp" (News of the World)

"A buttock-clenchingly terrifying cautionary tale" (Meg Rosoff, author)

Reseña del editor:

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 and attracted international media attention.

Brought up in England, Shaun took his business degree to Phoenix, Arizona, where he became an award winning stockbroker and then a millionaire day trader during the dot-com bubble. But Shaun also led a double life. An early fan of the rave scene in Manchester, he formed an organisation that threw raves and distributed Ecstacy. Before being convicted of money laundering and drug dealing, he served 26 months in the infamous jail system run by the notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Hard Time is the harrowing yet often darkly humorous account of the time Shaun spent submerged in a nightmarish world of gang violence, insect infested cells and food unfit for animals. His remarkable story provides a revealing glimpse into the tragedy, brutality, comedy and eccentricity of prison life.
