One Day in My Life is a human document of suffering, determination, anguish, courage and faith. It also provides frightening examples of mans inhumanity to man. Written with economy and a dry humour, it charts, almost minute by minute, a brave mans struggle to preserve his identity against cold, dirt and boredom. It is the record of a single day and conjures up vividly the enclosed hell of Long Kesh: the poor food, the harassment and the humiliating mirror searches. Bobby Sands and his comrades were often gripped by terror in the face of the iron system that held them and yet their courage never faltered.Written on toilet paper with a biro refill and hidden inside Bobby Sands own body, this is a book about human bravery and endurance.
