Infidel reflects what the reader brings to it and will change with time. Most of all, it is a commentary on futility and the pressures and limitations of living in confinement in an alien land with a small group of men. In a strange way, this is a partner book to Ed Clark's Guantanamo.
How imprisonment degrades life in the penal, domestic environment and the family environment. The pictures are sparse and clinical and so is the book, a reflection of the place from which they emerged. In a strange way, this is a partner book to Infidel.
