Audible buys rights to Robyn Travis memoir

OWN IT! has sold audio rights to Prisoner to the Streets by Robyn Travis to Audible.

Prisoner to the Streets (originally published by The X-Press in 2013) was re-edited and brought back into print by OWN IT! on June 6th 2016 as a new edition. The audio book is narrated by Travis himself, making it a "raw, emotional and poignant listening experience", according to the publisher.

A spokesperson for OWN IT! said: "The memoirs are an honest and uncompromising reflection of Robynʼs life ʻon roadʼ and explore the perils of being a young black man in innercity London, growing up between Tottenham and Hackney. Touching, at times uncomfortable to read, but ultimately inspiring and uplifting, Prisoner to the Streets offers a rare glimpse into an underground world. A world where disputes  were settled with violence. Where familiar faces from childhood became bitter enemies in war, and misguided pride led to devastating consequences."

The audiobook was released on 28th March.
