Editorial Reviews


“A thoughtful series of meditations on living as well as possible under the worst possible conditions.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A superb rendition on the horrors of imprisonment that should be read by everyone. Bravo Mr. Hoy, what a gift for the reader.” (Jimmy Santiago Baca, winner of the International Prize and author of A Place to Stand)

“…it is without a doubt an eye-opening account of what actually goes on there, and an incredibly absorbing read.” (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)

“T. M. Hoy's stories provide a coherent and gripping account of his five harrowing years in a Thai maximum security prison. Always aware of the reality he faces daily—and of its context outside the prison—Hoy comes through a most degrading experience whole and unbrutalized. He gives us an extremely readable, if tough to take at times, look at depths one hopes to never have to cope with.” (John Zerzan, author of Running on Emptiness)

About the Author

T. M. Hoy was born and raised in Mountain View, California. After extensive travel in Asia, he settled in Bangkok, and then Chiang Mai, located in Northern Thailand. While living there, he made a “tragic error in judgment” by not reporting a murder he witnessed to police. In 1995, he was given a life sentence, and spent the next five-plus years between Chiang Mai Remand and Bang Kwang Prison. He was given a treaty transfer and sent back to the states, where he finished his sentence at FCC Tucson in 2011. Hoy currently resides in Tucson, Arizona.
