Down But Not Out by Jack Lacy


Jack Lacy was born in Buckhurst Hill. Down But Not Out is his debut book

Down But Not Out isn’t an easy read. Jack Lacy, a pseudonym employed to try and ensure the author’s safety, writes about his life in a full and frank manner, and pulls no punches. We hear about his descent into a life of crime and the subsequent years he spends trying to survive a world that frequently endangers his life. The story is a little unfocused in parts and some of the stories have a tendency to ramble, but it’s a fascinating insight into a unique life.
