Summary

Simon Austen has the names people have called him tattooed all over his body. Waste of Space. Bastard. A Threat to Women. Murderer. Facing a lifetime behind bars and subjected to new therapies for sexual reprogramming, Simon finds himself plunged into a terrifying process of self-reconstruction. But how much, in the end, can a man really change?

Darkly compelling and deeply moving, Alphabet is a psychological exploration of one man's uncertain and often harrowing journey towards rehabilitation.

Critic reviews

"Simply an epiphany." (Kirkus)
"Intense, revealing, challenging and above all riveting...I kept saying to myself, how could she know this?” (Erwin James, convicted murderer, author of A Life Inside: A Prisoner’s Notebook)
"Sometimes novelists go too far - and sometimes they manage to demonstrate that too far is the place they needed to go." (Time Out UK)

Fascinating story

Disturbing yet fascinating an excellent story the characters seem so real. I wanted it to continue and find out answers to the questions raised in last few chapters. Not often you can wonder what happens to the people in a book when you reach the end.
