PRISON DOCTOR: My Time Inside Britain's Most Notorious Jails

DR AMANDA BROWN    Book Number: 87763    Product format: Paperback

Violence, drugs, suicide, miraculous pregnancies, dirty protests, heart-breaking acts of self-harm - Dr Amanda Brown has witnessed it all from her patients. She has treated inmates of the UK's most infamous prisons, first in young offenders' institutions, then at the notorious Wormwood Scrubs and finally at Europe's largest women-only prison, Bronzefield. Written with both humour and deep concern for the lives of her incarcerated patients, the book is a poignant and compassionate read. It gives insight into the complicated and damaged lives of some of the offenders and is a gruelling account of working behind bars. It features not only startling anecdotes but the more rewarding aspects of the job when prisoners sent her letters of thanks. A Sunday Times Bestseller. No literary masterpiece, this is a frank eye-opener of a read. 264pp in paperback.
