A man vilified by society and condemned to death for his crime wakes every morning knowing that this day might be his last. Graphically detailed, this first-person chronicle describes both the prisoner's wretched environment and his thoughts, reminiscences, and despair at his impending doom. This edition also includes the companion pieces "A Comedy about a Tragedy" and "Claude Gueux," a real-life account of an executed criminal in France.
