Product Description


'A surprisingly touching, beautifully written tale... While peppered with hair-raising accounts of scrapes with the cops, violence and abuse, Criminal never loses its sense of optimism'―News of the World

'This is a fine, unsparing book... If you want to understand why our prisons are bulging, and where some hope for the future may lie, read this book. Caspar strips his own life back to the bone'―Helen Dunmore

'An extraordinary autobiography. Vibrantly written with one of the most compelling characters in Caspar's father that I've come across in a long time. It's a masterful portrayal of the two sides of a man and demonstrayes with absolute clarity how confusing love can be within an abusive relationship'―Minette Walters

About the Author

Caspar Walsh is a regular writer for Radio 4, with broadcasts including the sixties gangster story Vincent Vices Rainbow and the acclaimed feature-length docudrama The Prison Father, which was based on his own experience of prison life. He regularly runs writing workshops both in and out of prisons that help offending fathers and their families in the rehabilitation process.
