‘It’s jail,’ I said. ‘Don’t expect better of anybody in jail. Expect worse.’

Welcome to Her Majesty’s Prison Loanend, where inmate Harold ‘Chalky’ Chalkman – serving twelve for a violent assault, and lucky not to have been done for attempted murder – works as the orderly to ‘E’ and ‘F’ wings.

Burning with authenticity, The Wing Orderly’s Tales is about damnation and redemption, humour and darkness, and the slivers of humanity that survive in even the harshest environments.

‘This book is very close to the bone. Gébler accurately projects many of the characteristics of prisoners, and captures the intricacies and uniqueness of prison culture. It incorporates the good, the bad and the ugly of prison life, it is all there, a gripping read.’    John Lonergan, former Governor of Mountjoy Prison
