Author Info
Jeffrey Archer
Jeffrey Archer was educated in Oxford at Wellington School and Brasenose College, during which time he represented Great Britain as a world-class sprinter. He was elected a member of the House of Commons representing Louth in 1969, becoming its youngest member. He stepped down from his post in 1974 with financial troubles brought about by failed investments. He began writing thrillers to help overcome some of his debts, starting with "Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less", which became an immediate success. In 1985 he was appointed deputy chairman of the Conservative Party and in 1992 joined the House of Lords. His political thrillers have become international bestsellers, with millions of copies sold.
From the Publisher
Editors Note In a second volume in the autobiographical series, the best-selling author recounts his incarceration at a Norfolk medium-security prison, where he makes observations about the British penal system and waits for a transfer to a minimum-security establishment.
Editors Note 1 In a second volume in the autobiographical series, the best-selling author recounts his incarceration at a Norfolk medium-security prison, where he makes observations about the British penal system and waits for a transfer to a minimum-security establishment. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
Editors Note 2 On August 9, 2001, 22 days after Archer--now known as Prisoner FF8282--was sentenced to four years in prison for perjury, he was transferred from a maximum security prison in London to HMP Wayland, a medium security prison in Norfolk. For the next 67 days, as he waited to be reclassified for an "open," minimum security prison, he encountered not only the daily degradations of a dangerously overstretched prison system but also the spirit and courage of his fellow inmates.Purgatory: A Prison Diary, Volume 2, is Archer's frank, shocking, sometimes humorous, sometimes horrifying account of those 67 days.
