Derailed begins in Attica prison, in the classroom of a volunteer English teacher.
A student hands in a remarkable story and thus begins a twisting, turning, fast-paced narrative of one man's ultimate downward spiral from a good life to that of a fugitive.
This story is best described as an experience, like riding a roller coaster blindfolded. Without giving too much away, I'll just say that this story is extremely graphic in places and definitely not for young readers. As the tale progresses the initial shocks seem somewhat justified, however, I believe much could have been insinuated without degrading the reader.
