When the Nixon administration dealt Clifford Irving a 2 ½ year prison sentence for committing the Howard Hughes Autobiography Hoax, the 41-year-old author was shocked . . . and unprepared to serve time. In prison, he learned how to jail and prevail. But then he was caught with contraband, moved to a three-star penitentiary, and later accused of inciting a riot and conspiring to kill the warden.
This is the true and penetrating story of how Irving survived and won the battle for his freedom. After his journal was excerpted in Playboy, the full memoir hasn’t been available until this special new for 2012 eBook edition.
The cover photo of the author was taken at Alcatraz in July 1979 – While on a voluntary visit!
