Clifford Irving’s Prison Journal


When the Nixon administration dealt Clifford Irving a 2 ½ year prison sentence for committing the Howard Hughes Hoax, the 41-year-old author was unprepared to serve time.

In prison he learned to jail and prevail. But then he was caught with contraband, moved to a three-star penitentiary, and accused of inciting a riot and conspiring to kill the warden.

This is the true story of how the author won the battle for his freedom.
