Living with Killers: An Incredible True Story of Life on the Inside by Norman Parker
'I would sit in the dining hall, surreptitiously examining my fellow murderers. You could never have guessed their crimes just by looking. There were former bank managers, accountants, solicitors, bus drivers, as well as tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor. There was even a former priest. A more normal-looking group of men you couldn't have found anywhere. Murder, it seemed, was no respecter of occupation or social status.' Bestselling author of Parkhurst Tales, Norman Parker was convicted of murder and spent much of his sentence in category A prisons. There's nothing Norman can't tell you about doing time. By turns horrifying, dark and funny, Living With Killers is an extraordinary insight into life in one of Britain's most notorious prisons. A real-life story, the name of the prison and its inhabitants has been changed, allowing Norman to tell nothing but the truth and expose the dark, raw reality of prison life. With a huge cast of eccentric characters, and stories that will make you laugh and wince in equal measure, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in the truth about what really goes on behind bars.
