Imprisoned in 1975, Breyten Breytenbach was retried in 1977 on new charges that, among other things, he had planned a Russian submarine attack on the prison at Robben Island through the conspiratorial Okhela Organisation. In the end, the judge found him guilty only of having smuggled letters and poems out of jail. This book is composed of transcriptions from the trial, as well as prison correspondence between Breytenbach and a number of people including André Brink, Cloete Breytenbach, Marius Schoon and Peter Randall.
