A Woman Doing Life

Notes from a Prison for Women

Erin George, Edited by Robert Johnson, and Afterword by Joycelyn Pollock

A Woman Doing Life is the only book that tells stories of women in prison from the inside out. Author and inmate Erin George draws a vivid and uniquely raw portrait of female life in prison, detailing her own responses to incarceration as well as her observations of prison relationships, death and sickness, reactions from friends and family, and even "cooking" in prison. The text also features poignant stories from other female inmates.
