Simon Austen has the names people have called him tattooed all over his body. Waste of Space. Bastard. A Threat to Women. Murderer. Facing a lifetime behind bars and subjected to new therapies for sexual reprogramming, Simon finds himself plunged into a terrifying process of self-reconstruction. But how much, in the end, can a man really change?
Darkly compelling and deeply moving, Alphabet is a psychological exploration of one man's uncertain and often harrowing journey towards rehabilitation.
