Synopsis

Prison is harsh enough, but as a foreigner (farang) in a strange land, jail time is an even more horrifying reality. Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton is a collection of short stories chronicling T. M. Hoys descent into the harrowing world of Southeast Asian prison life. Through his eyes, readers will experience the bizarre events of daily life in a Thai maximum security prison: feel the weight of the chains he wears, the stomachaches from lack of food, witness the murders, drug overdoses, torture, and unbridled cruelty that ensues. Sentenced to life in prison, Hoy does his best to accept the fate hes been given. While attempting to adjust to this third-world hellhole, he contracts tuberculosis and nearly loses his life. Hoys stories are brutal and his words are heart-wrenching. Go places youve only seen in your nightmares, to a world in which few survive, and none emerge unscathed . . . and if youre lucky, youll die before you really begin to suffer.
