Papillon is a nonfiction classic -- a harrowing story of a man who is imprisoned for a murder he never committed, is sent to Devils Island off the coast of French Guiana, yet never gives up hope of escape. It is so engrossing that many may forget it is a true story, a tale of injustice, heroism, and redemption more thrilling than any novel. Now Henri Charriere's astonishing autobiography is back in print, bringing to a new generation of readers this story of survival inside several brutal prisons, of no less than 12 daring escape attempts, and ultimately of the triumph of the human spirit.
