A key player in the worst prison riot in British history at Strangeways Prison in April 1990, Alan Lord was always in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was drawn to trouble like water to a sponge.
After experiencing a troubled childhood during which Alan was in and out of children’s homes – after being put into care at the tender age of eighteen months old – Alan was a teenager in 1981 when he was sentenced to life in prison for murder during a robbery that had gone badly wrong. He served thirty-two years in various prisons throughout the United Kingdom. This book tells the truth of what goes on behind prison walls and exposes the level of inhumane treatment and brutality that Alan had to endure throughout his thirty-two year journey, during which he never stopped standing up for human rights.
Powerfully detailing the way prisoners are treated on a daily basis, Life in Strangeways is a gripping tale that will change the perception of Alan Lord: convicted murderer and riot leader. Buy the book today for £2.39.

With a sharp eye for the magnificently absurd, Rod Liddle sets light to modern-day Britain.
What is it that has transformed the British who in living memory were admired for their unassuming, stiff-upper-lipped capacity for `muddling through’ into the feckless,
obese, self-deluding, avaricious and self-obsessed whingers we have become? Savagely funny and relentlessly contrary, yet with a poignant sense of all that we have lost, Rod Liddle mercilessly exposes the absurdity, cant and humbuggery of the way we live now.

Hitchens began the nineties as a “darling of the left” but has become more of an “unaffiliated radical” whose targets include those on the “left,” who he accuses of “fudging” the issue of military intervention in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Yet, as Hitchens shows in his reportage, cultural and literary criticism, and opinion essays from the last decade, he has not jumped ship and joined the right but is faithful to the internationalist, contrarian and democratic ideals that have always informed his work.
