Finished copies of Strangeways arrived in the office today!
Non-fiction Agent Martin Redfern says:
‘I couldn’t be more thrilled to see Sam’s book in final printed form. It’s almost exactly a year since I picked out the proposal from our submissions inbox, and I can still remember how I felt when I read the opening scene, with its horrifying description of a prison cell fire and the psychological effect it had on Sam, a prison officer at Strangeways. I was gripped, and knew I had to find a publisher for this electrifying memoir, which throws a brutal light on the state of our prison system. It has been such a privilege to work with Sam, whose humour and spirit shine through every page of the book. And Ingrid and the team at Macmillan have been brilliant. Roll on publication day on 14 June!’
