The diary of one man's experiences of his time in prison written over 300 days as he reels from and makes sense of being under lock and key. A white collar criminal he sees himself as someone who should not really be in prison?-?as 'a good man' for whom his incarceration is doubly punitive, not practically necessary or achieving much other than the degradation and powerlessness of being in prison. But as time passes he accepts his fate and settles down to the regime, helping others and using the experience to best advantage. Captures the essence of the sudden incarceration of a previously respectable white collar offender whose reputation and comfortable life have been turned upside down. Not only from self-interest, does he try to explain the futility of locking up people like himself making the book of interest to prison reformers as well as general readers.A rare white collar account of prison: Contains insights for anyone interested in prisoners and imprisonment; Set out as a diary and very easy to read; Illustrated by the author; Humorous, sometimes dark, critical, insightful and of particular interest to prison reformers. Will Phillips is a singer-songwriter and performer whose on-stage experiences include as lead singer in bands and appearing in musicals such as Camelot and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Having also worked as a chef and catering events consultant and organizer, in 2010 he found himself in prison for fraudulent offences. The author of several short stories, including Ouija Board and Curse, he spends his free time at home playing his guitar in the company of his Siamese cat and best friend Dexter.

'Has the great merit of providing the reader with a vivid account of the baptism of a first-time prisoner': Independent Monitor.
