Abstract

414 Affilia: Journal of Women and Social Work 32(3) written by George, including her poems, a prison glossary, and a collection of cooking recipes from the inside, are wonderful. In short, A Woman Doing Life offers the honest voice of a talented writer and observer of the human experience who is living her life behind bars. The book would be a valuable addition to the bookshelf or syllabus of social work practitioners and scholars seeking to build knowledge about prison life. George’s accounts, including her own biases and constructions of self, provoke the reaction and critical thinking that is so important to facilitating class discussion and learning. Ritchie, E.
