Hardback with dust jacket - 189 pages, published 1980, Very good condition

Writing under his own name, and only thinly disguising his own name, Ken Berry has penned a sincere and compassionate account of the two years and eight months he served for embezzlement in the first offenders' prison of 'Te Ariki'.

Although the author does not dwell unnecessarily on episodes of sex and violence, the common obscenities of prison life and language are not glossed over: this is not a book for the squeamish or those who prefer to turn their heads away from reality. For its social importance, its sheer gusto and humour, its honesty and its underlying tragedy, FIRST OFFENDER will be widely read and enjoyed by thinking New Zealanders in all sectors of the community.
