From the jacket- "In 1926 Herman Charles Bosman was condemned to death after a catastrophic incident in which his stepbrother was killed. On the judge's recommendation, however, a reprieve was granted and at the age of twenty-one Bosman went to serve a four-year term of imprisonment with hard labour. Cold Stone Jug is the unique chronicle of his prison experiences."
