Andy West’s tense and intimate book is an education . . . The Life Inside deserves the widest possible readership.
By turns enriching, sobering and at times, heartrending. A tale centering on our inner critic or executioner and how to stifle its constant sniping. A wonder.
An authentic, fascinating and deeply moving story about the different ways people search for freedom.
Written with sensitivity and humanity... a remarkable insight into prison life
