    I expected to love this book, but really hated it First, it seems obvious he was writing these letters to his girlfriend with an expectation that they would be published some day The writing seemed meant for a wider audience This is a person who apparently worked in public relations for many years and it shows He also writes about prison like it s a delightful little lark It s one thing to keep up a brave face, but page after page of this just grating and artificial Who s he trying to k I expected to love this book, but really hated it First, it seems obvious he was writing these letters to his girlfriend with an expectation that they would be published some day The writing seemed meant for a wider audience This is a person who apparently worked in public relations for many years and it shows He also writes about prison like it s a delightful little lark It s one thing to keep up a brave face, but page after page of this just grating and artificial Who s he trying to kid The worst was when he wrote that some of the books he s reading in jail have a lot of casual anti semitism Bizarrely, he then goes on to say that now the memory of the victims of the Holocaust is being sullied by the Israelis Now obviously that s an anti semitic thing to say, spoken by someone who lumps all Jews into one pile, and doesn t see a difference between different people separated by half a century and half a world All he sees is Jews, and they all reflect on each other Only a true racist bigot thinks this way, and this slip shows his true colours, and is one of many things that makes him an unreliable narrator and guide to the troubles and politics in general He actually sets this passage up as if he s got the moral high ground for objecting to the way other writers treat the Jews I d say what a hypocrite, but he doesn t seem too self aware That girlfriend of his must have been very naive There s some good description of prison conditions and some of the people he spends time with But I came away thinking here s someone I truly despise

    Very moving portrait of life in the H Blocks and, particularly, the effects of political imprisonment on his relationship with his wife In addition, Morrison offers brilliant analysis of the republican struggle immediately prior to the 1994 ceasefire My only qualm with the book is that there wasn t enough of that
