The Prison House by John King
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The first-person narrative of a young English traveller locked up in a Greek jail for a crime he didn't commit, "The Prison House" is a visceral, violent and compelling novel by the author of "The Football Factory. Seven Towers is another name for Hell: a prison where squalor and fear are endemic and where the barbarism of the warders is more than matched by that of the inmates. A nightmare intercut with memories of childhood and his past journeys, "The Prison House" is as much about one man's indomitable will to survive as it is about the capacity for evil. As such, it is a moving testament to the human spirit and its ability - against the odds - to hold on to hope and the idea of love.
