Not exactly a great literary work, but as a prison narrative, amazingly insightful and nuanced about all the subtle ways that prison oppresses these women. (Forgiving her a simplistic view of the drug war and mental health issues, of course.)

Caty A cool client got this for me--sweet! Northampton, ex-Smithies, drug money laundering, and the prison industrial complex? I'm so there.

Jane I'd be interested in hearing what you think of this (I haven't read it)
