Henri Charrière

The book is an account of a year period in Papillon's life October 26, to October 18, , beginning when he was wrongly convicted of murder in France and sentenced to a life of hard labor at the Bagne de Cayenne , the penal colony of Cayenne in French Guiana known as Devil's Island. He eventually escaped from the colony and settled in Venezuela , where he lived and prospered. After a brief stay at a prison in Caen , Papillon was put aboard a vessel bound for South America , where he learned about the brutal life that prisoners endured at the prison colony. Violence and murders were common among the convicts. Men were attacked for many reasons, including money, which most kept in a charger a hollow metal cylinder concealed in the rectum; also known as a plan d'evasion , plan , or "escape suppository".
