The Prisoner's Tale

Despising the corporeal communality, the prying of the psychiatrist and the cloying affections of the ugliest inmate in the Institution, the prisoner effects his escape. Irreverent, snide and amoral, the prisoner, throughout his fast-paced and Kafkaesque adventures, treats all, including the reader, with equal contempt.

About Richard Spanswick

Richard Spanswick was born in London, but eventually left the soft south to live Up North. Studied law, gave that a miss, and instead settled on a career in video production.

Over the years Richard has produced documentaries on the Brontë sisters and Buddhism, and numerous corporate video programs. He has somehow ended up living in Oregon, with his wife, where he continues to write and play music with the band Strange Charm (

Richard currently has three books self-published on Smashwords, each in a different genre. Cymbelina and the Cat with No Name is a book for children aged around 7-8; set in Britain, the story involves a cranky cat, a little magic, and a bewitching outcome for the Christmas family. The Father's Sins is a serious novel concerning a father and son whose relationship has a chance of deepening until a crime and its aftermath cause their lives to unravel. The Prisoner's Tale is wickedly funny, irreverent, and a little surreal. After making his escape, the prisoner roams a dystopian fantasy world, on the verge of making his dreams come true (
