I'm really enjoying all of Jeffrey Archer's Prison Diary volumes. I find that I like his wit. I appreciate how he humanized prisoners without excusing their actions. The stories of prison bureaucracy make me laugh, even if that is not the intent. However, I don't think I will ever understand cricket despite Archer's best efforts. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312342160, Paperback)

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.
