Abused as a child by his local priest, Brian O'Dea, a once ordinary young man, became a rebel, using and selling drugs for the escape and excitement they offered.

Eventually he quit the trade i i and the drugs i i and was working with recovering addicts in Santa Barbara, when the authorities finally caught up with him. Extracts of Brian's prison diary i i perceptive, funny and alarming i i are interleaved with a vivid re-telling of his outlaw years and the ultimate recognition of the things in his life that were worth living for.
