An anecdotal, emotional and occasionally amusing anthology of reflections on a completely unexpected period of time spent behind bars. The author never actually committed any crime, and once his appeal date was granted he was released immediately after 5 minutes worth legal argument was heard! He kept his sanity in tact by writing poems and an extensive journal. This is principally a book of poetry, but the author has also illustrated the pages of Sentenced with his own pencil drawings and paintings, all of which evoke the poignancy of a number of very different events that occurred while he was stuck behind bars with an assortment of people he never thought he'd meet. A compelling and eye opening read for anyone whether interested in prison life or not.
