Description

A Prison Diary Volume III Day 115. Saturday 10th November 2001. 6.38am.

It's all an act. I am hopelessly unhappy, dejected and broken. I smile when I am at my lowest, I laugh when I see no humour, I help others when I need help myself. I am alone. If I were to show any sign, even for a moment, of what I'm going through, I would have to read the details in some tabloid the following day. Everything I do is only a phone call away from a friendly journalist with an open cheque book. I don't know where I have found the strength to maintain this facade and never break down in anyone's presence.

The final volume of Jeffrey Archer's prison diaries, A Prison Diary Volume III: Heaven, covers the period of his transfer from Wayland to his eventual release on parole in July 2003. It includes a shocking account of the traumatic time he spent in the notorious Lincoln jail and the events that led to his incarceration there – it also throws light on a system that is close to breaking point.

Told with humour, compassion and honesty, it closes with a thought-provoking manifesto that should be applauded by the Establishment and prison population alike.

    It's riveting and you feel you travel this awful journey with him. Despite trying to be a model prisoner in an attempt to gain privileges such as a privacy in the bathroom and a single room he is pushed to the limits by petty mindedness. He offers the opportunity to use his talents and education to do some good but seems to be dogged with jobs-worths.
