Inside the monkey house: my time as an Irish prison officer

Cuffe, John, author

When John Cuffe entered Mountjoy as a young prison officer in May 1978, he stepped back into Victorian times. He knew nothing about jails, apart from what he had seen in black-and-white films: 'good' sheriffs and 'bad' hombres. He quickly learned that behind bars there is no black and white: the 'bad' guy often comes in the guise of officialdom. Here, he reveals the raw truth of 30 tough years on the inside
