Newjack EBURY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

After he was denied access to report on Sing Sing, one of America's most notorious high security jails, journalist Ted Conover applied to become a prison guard. As a rookie officer, or 'newjack', Conover spent a year in the unpredictable, intimidating and often violent world of America's penal system. Unarmed and outnumbered, prison officers at one of America's toughest maximum security jails supervise 1,800 inmates, most of whom have been convicted of violent felonies: murder, manslaughter, and rape. Prisoners conceal makeshift weapons to settle gang rivalries or old grudges, and officers are often attacked or caught in the crossfire. When violence flares up in the galleries or yard an officer's day can go from mundane to terrifying in a heartbeat. Conover is an acclaimed journalist, known for immersing himself completely in a situation in order to write about it. With remarkable insight, "Newjack" takes the reader as close to experiencing life in an American prison as any of us would ever want to get. It's a thrillingly told account of how the gruelling world of the prison system brutalizes all who enter it - prison guards and prisoners alike.

Peterhead B&W PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Robert Jeffrey, author of the bestselling "Barlinnie Story" and other true crime books, now tells the remarkable story of the infamous Peterhead Prison in Scotland's far north-east. Built in the 1880s as part of an ambitious humanitarian plan to use convict labour to construct a 'harbour of refuge' on the town's wild, storm-battered coast, it became what some call Scotland's gulag. A cold and brutal place, it has held down the years some of Scotland's most violent criminals and most infamous prisoners, convicted of the most heinous of crimes. In the early days, convicts were controlled by men as hard as their charges. The wardens carried swords and were quick to use them if necessary. And when convict labour was used to build the harbour, they worked with rifles trained on them at all times. Peterhead's wardens were clearly not to be crossed. Throughout the history of the prison, riots and breakouts have made headlines, with the SAS involved in restoring order at one point. Peterhead also had the reputation of being so secure that escape was impossible, with the notable exception of Johnny Ramensky, the safeblower turned war hero who went back to his criminal ways and spent more than forty years of his life in prison, many of them in Peterhead. He became the first inmate to escape and repeated the exercise four more times, often for his own satisfaction and amusement, each time being recaptured after a short taste of freedom. "Peterhead - Scotland's Toughest Prison" tells the remarkable inside story of a truly grim institution with a fearsome reputation.

Jade Goody - Jade BLAKE PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The moment Jade Goody stepped into the Big Brother house in 2002, her life changed forever. As soon as she opened her mouth on national TV, Jade secured her place as the unofficial winner of the third series of Big Brother and became the most famous reality TV star in the UK. The glitz and glamour of Jade's sudden fame was a far cry from the real-life drama of the estate where she made her start. Brought up in a run-down part of Bermondsey, South London, caring for her disabled mum and with her dad in and out of prison, she had experienced more by the time she started secondary school than most people do in their whole lifetime. But Jade always lived her life with incredible spirit - and that is what endeared her to millions of people during her time on Big Brother. Behind the bubbly exterior, though, there was a tough and fiercely determined lady. Jade was always the first to admit that she had made mistakes - and there were many trials and tribulations along the way. But when she was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008, she faced the toughest battle of her life, in the full glare of the national media. Jade fought with dignity and unbelievable strength of character, never giving up hope and always striving to do the best she could for her beloved boys, Bobby and Freddy. In this, the second instalment of her autobiography, Jade spares no detail as she reveals all about her time in therapy, her tempestuous relationship with the love of her life, Jack Tweed (who she married in February 2009) and the trauma of her cancer diagnosis. Funny, moving and disarmingly honest, Fighting to the End truly is a fitting tribute to one of Britain's best loved celebrities.
