Shortlisted for the Political Book Awards 2013 International Affairs Book of the Year.
GANG OF ONE is the remarkable true story of one man’s journey from a Glasgow orphanage to a notorious gang-infested prison in Texas. Driven by his desire to return to his son in England and haunted by the increasingly frustrating search for his missing daughter, Gary Mulgrew attempts the impossible task of surviving the prison’s gang culture.
Told with wit and humanity, GANG OF ONE shows a man constantly confronted by the moral and physical challenges of prison life, where everyone is encouraged to turn their back and ‘see nuthin”.
Gary’s choice – to walk away and let a man die, or intervene and lose the chance to get home – makes GANG OF ONE a book as unforgettable as it is enthralling.
