His prison diaries were very good too. He’s a nob, not a very good writer, but a brilliant story-teller.I know Geoffrey Archer is despised by a lot of posters on here but his short story novel Cat O’ Nine Tales about his time in Belmarsh is well with a read. There’s 12 stories, nine of which are true about inmates at Belmarsh and three that are fiction but no indication which is which.
Put Archer to one side, it’s very entertaining and good bedtime reading as it doesn’t tax the brain too much.
It’s not Proust or Solzhenitsyn but for those like me that prefer easier reading it’s decent.
