About the Author

Terry Waite is well-known as a humanitarian campaigner and author. In the 1980s he was Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie's Assistant for Anglican Communion Affairs and travelled to Lebanon to try to secure the release of four hostages, including journalist John McCarthy. He was himself held captive between 1987 and 1991, and remains actively involved with hostages and their families as well as working with those who find themselves on the margins of society.


No regrets. No sentimentality. No self-pity. Many times in the years ahead Waite found it almost impossible to keep those resolutions. But he did, in quite magnificent fashion. - The Sunday ExpressThis book is what stood between Terry Waite and insanity. It was written in his head while he festered in captivity, his answer to that most terrible of prisoners' questions - how did I end up like this? - ObserverA remarkable story of physical humiliation, survival and release. - The Sunday TimesA poignant self-portrait - Daily Telegraph
