Book description
In this strange, vivid and compelling novel, Andrea Freud Loewenstein weaves together the intricate strands of four women's lives with extraordinary power. Set over a period of four months in the suffocating, enclosed world of a women's prison, the novel takes shape through the alternating voices of Ruth, a therapist working at the prison; Candy, a street-wise young inmate; Sonya, an art therapist; and Telecea Jones, a life prisoner whose delusional, demon-inhabited world-view is surprisingly accurate.
As events drift inexorably towards their tragic climax, the novel raises fundamental questions about freedom and imprisonment, race and sexual identity; and the meaning of loving.
