Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton

Rotting in the Bangkok Hilton: The Gruesome True Story of a Man Who Survived Thailand’s Deadliest Prison by T.M. Hoy, 4/5

This was much better written and less sensationalistic than the title (and especially, subtitle) led me to expect.  It was unusual in that it was not at all biographical or agenda-driven, but consisted of a short selection of powerful and insightful essays focusing on specific happenings, individual people the author encountered and aspects of prison life.
