Book Description

The white prisoner by Ognian Georgiev

The Indie Book of the Day for 19th of December, 2014!

Genre: Biography, Sports

This wasn’t the first time Galabin Boevski felt oppressed. He had suffered the atrocious legacy of communism and the lack of support that a talented athlete like him should otherwise expect from his motherland.

It had been a week since his arrest. He’d spent a night in the jail of Sao Paulo’s airport, then transferred to another Brazilian prison for temporary detention. Now he was in Itai, a prison for foreigners, full of people from all over the world.

His memories kept rushing in and he kept going over the unfortunate events over and over. What went wrong? He spent his first night in jail with 1500 prisoners who were serving their sentences there – murderers, rapists, fraudsters and thieves, but the majority of them people like him – accused of drug trafficking. “I’m not a mule,” he thought, “I am Galabin Boevski. Legendary weightlifter and Olympic champion, not a criminal!”

…based on a true story…
