'For almost all my life, I've been the person you crossed the street to avoid...'
Peter Woolf's life of drinking, drug-taking and thieving had begun before most people leave school. Spending most of his adult life in prison made no difference to him: life itself offered him no hope. Today, amazingly, Peter is clean and has not reoffended since a life-changing meeting in 2002 when he came face to face with some of his victims.
The Damage Done is a searingly honest and gritty portrayal of a man ensconced in an endless cycle of drugs, violence, prison and depravity who, one Tuesday afternoon in a glass room at Pentonville prison, was forced to confront all that he had destroyed.
Quite a gritty book, read it quickly because I wanted to know how things turned out in the end.
Total Recall? Not so
I think the drugs may have addled his brain more than he realised. His recall of certain events are not muddied they are invented. John L Gardner NEVER owned or managed the Nags Head at any time - ever!!
