Revue de presse

"Prepare to be transported to a brutal, life-threatening, drug-addicted world. 40 years after Papillon, a new memoir of prison survival has arrived" (Clayton Littlewood, author of Goodbye to Soho)

Présentation de l'éditeur

If you like the Shawshank Redemption, you will love Prison Time.

Prison Time, the sequel to Hard Time, is the story of Shaun Attwood's journey through the Arizona Department of Corrections and his deportation to England.

Sentenced to 9½ years in Arizona's state prison for distributing Ecstasy, Shaun finds himself living among gang members, sexual predators and drug-crazed psychopaths. After being attacked by a 20-stone California biker, Shaun writes about the prisoners who befriend, protect and inspire him. They include T-Bone, a massive African American ex-Marine who risks his life saving vulnerable inmates from rape, and Two Tonys, an old-school Mafia murderer who left the corpses of his rivals from Tucson to Alaska. They teach Shaun how to turn incarceration to his advantage, and to learn from his mistakes.

Shaun is no stranger to love and lust in the heterosexual world, but the tables are turned on him inside. As well as the ever-present threat of rape, sexual advances come at Shaun from all directions, some cleverly disguised, others more sinister - making Shaun question his sexual identity. Prison Time is the first ever book to detail the sex lives of prisoners.

Resigned to living alongside violent, mentally-ill and drug-addicted inmates, Shaun immerses himself in psychology and philosophy to try to make sense of his past behaviour, and begins applying what he learns as he adapts to prison life. Encouraged by Two Tonys to explore fiction as well, Shaun reads over 1000 books which, with support from brilliant psychotherapist Dr. Owen, speed along his personal development. As his ability to deflect daily threats improves, Shaun begins to look forward to his release with optimism and a new love waiting for him. Yet the words of Aristotle from one of Shaun's books will prove prophetic: "We cannot learn without pain."

HASH(0x98144510) étoiles sur 5 It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... 14 mai 2014
Par Mark Coates - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
The best book in the 'Time' trilogy. the worst 'time' of Attwood's rollercoaster life, no doubt. Yes, it's very different to the first two, but you can map Attwood's maturity as a writer across the three with Prison Time being the pinnacle. So far. This guy gets better and better.

There are some similarities between this and the other books: Attwood's extraordinary honesty, his outstanding descriptions of his own emotional turmoil and an excellent representation of the larger-than-life criminal characters he meets. However, be warned, there are some genuinely shocking, real-life stories here that curl the toes and curdle the blood, and they're different to those in Hard Time: namely, the sexual deviancy and hormone-induced blood-lust that runs through prisons the world over.

In 5 words (or so), it's: gritty, jaw-dropping, philosophical, darkly humorous and emotional.

Highly recommended, but not for the faint-hearted.

HASH(0x98144564) étoiles sur 5 How to Turn Adversity into Creativity 13 mai 2014
Par Clayton Littlewood - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
In the early 70s I read Papillon, a memoir about life in a penal colony. It was harrowing, brutal, and gripping. Shaun's trilogy, Hard Time, Party Time and now Prison Time, is in the same mould. Each book had me biting my lip, squirming in my seat, willing him to survive. Thank God he did, because he has gone on to do something that few people can do. He has turned adversity into something creative.

In this latest book he describes his life in a dangerous American prison, populated by characters that fiction would be hard to match. But what shines through is Shaun's will to survive and improve his life. It's an achievement that just shows, the hard knocks in life can, if you overcome them, reap amazing rewards. And the reward we have here is the discovery of a writer of great talent.

HASH(0x9814499c) étoiles sur 5 When wolfish ambition goes wrong................. 13 mai 2014
Par Ms. Nancy Buckland - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
If you have already been reading this trilogy, then you will know that this is going to be the toughest set of chapters. Shaun Attwood, who has chronicled his tale in his previous two books has by now covered his time as the small town boy from the North West of England, who goes on to be an ambitious stockbroker in the U.S. After the hedonism of his earlier lifestyle, Shaun has been on a path to living a life of high finance and then crime. This book deals with the time when you think there will be no end in sight: the author's incarceration in one of America's toughest jails. Shaun never veers from the deeply shocking truth, and whilst his time in prison comes after he has been involved in activities that are punishable by law, you can't help but wondering what you do, how you would feel, and how you would cope if you had to trade places. I was most shocked by the amount of people who lose their freedom through untreated mental illness - it is something again that Shaun deals with in this book, even if it is an unpalatable reality. Shaun is a hugely intelligent writer who sweeps you along with his story, and you never want him to give up. His rich observation of real life characters like T-Bone is heart wrenching at times, but you won't want to put this book down. You want to stay with Shaun and find out what happens, and if he finds light at the end of a very dark tunnel. The sign of a truly good book is that it makes you question yourself, your own life and your own character long after you have read the last page. It so easy to judge another person's life, but this book throws up so many questions and dilemmas. This is a truly remarkable third part to the trilogy, and a fitting end to what started off as a very personal prison diary, which shows the warmth of the author from start to finish.

Great book along with Atwood's other publications. I highly recommend this to anyone who is even dreaming about getting caught up in world of drug dealing. The consequences of prison are simply horrifying!

HASH(0x98144d14) étoiles sur 5 A remarkable book 2 mars 2015
Par jonathan - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Prison Time describes Shaun Atwood's time in an Arizona gaol, following his time on remand (described in Hard Time, also a good book). It is an eye-opening description of a complete world in itself. It is a world that you never want to visit but may find yourself in if circumstances turn out that way (what you have actually done is only half of that story).

Shaun Attwood describes life in prison as it is for the prisoners and it is fascinating. It is lived by and with and for the other prisoners. The prison guards and authorities really have no part in it except in the way that the environment does, like insects and forests and chasms and abysses and, sometimes, rock walls: they set the limits and character of the environment but not the life that is carried on within it. Only the prisoners and the people who have a direct impact on his life (like his family, his girlfriend and his therapists) have names and lives and personalities and they are much richer and more varied than you would expect if you were to forget (as perhaps the Arizona DoC might like you to do) that prisoners are people with rich histories.

All of this is described in an undecorated style. The stories do not need drama forced onto them. The circumstances which have led to the various prisoners ending up where they are include vicious crimes and Shaun Attwood does not avoid this but he does not judge them either: he describes the other prisoners and himself (including what they have done) and how it is being a prisoner and how the prisoners act towards each other. This may be brutal but is also often very touching, with respect, loyalty and affection. Some of the descriptions of the book make a lot of how it describes sex amongst the prisoners but they tend to mislead. Sex in various forms happens and is described in the usual straightforward way but it is just part of the life that is being written about, not a subject to be avoided nor made more of than it was as part of that life. It is not the subject of the book nor is there anything in it for the prurient reader.

The world described is horrifying in many ways but overall effect of the book is not depressing. This is partly because *spoiler alert* he is released in the end and so there is a happy ending. It may also be because of the origins of the book in the author's blog which he used as a way of trying to improve life not only generally by making public some of the scandals of the system but specifically and directly for some of the prisoners he lived with. Helping others because you can, as he did, is always uplifting.
