Product description

Review

'An extraordinary autobiography. Vibrantly written with one of the most compelling characters in Caspar's father that I've come across in a long time. It's a masterful portrayal of the two sides of a man and demonstrayes with absolute clarity how confusing love can be within an abusive relationship' (Minette Walters)

'This is a fine, unsparing book about what addiction does to all the lives it touches. Caspar Walsh's childhood almost took him down the same path of self-destruction as his charismatic but predatory father. If you want to understand why our prisons are bulging, and where some hope for the future may lie, read this book. Caspar Walsh strips his own life back to the bone as he writes about this child's ferocious love for a father who can't help loving him less than drugs, alcohol and the fix of crime' (Helen Dunmore)

'This is a fine, unsparing book... If you want to understand why our prisons are bulging, and where some hope for the future may lie, read this book. Caspar strips his own life back to the bone' (Helen Dunmore)

'A surprisingly touching, beautifully written tale... While peppered with hair-raising accounts of scrapes with the cops, violence and abuse, Criminal never loses its sense of optimism' (News of the World)

Book Description

The hard-hitting memoir of a childhood tainted by violence, sexual abuse and crime, and of a life rehabilitated
