The Damade Done by Warren Fellows - an essential read !
True story, 1978, convicted of heroin trafficking between Thailand and Australia. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in the notorious Bang Kwang prison - better known as the Bangkok Hilton. It was the beginning of 12 years of hell in a place where sewer rats and cockroaches are the only nutritious food, where prison guards laugh as they deliver pulverising blows and where the worst punishment is the khun deo - solitary confinement, Thai style. It is not Warren Fellows' plea for forgiveness or his denial of guilt, .. its a story of endurance, survival and the abuse of human rights during the decade of a life wasted in leg irons. I know it sounds dark - but its an eye opener!!

I recently read 'Extremely loud and incredibly close' by Jonathan Safran Foer. It was truely remarkable. Also, most of Paul Austers work really is worth reading.
