Jailbirds: Lessons from a Women's Prison by Mim Skinner
The only book to be published about a UK women's prison - and told from the unique point of view of a prison teacher - this is the fascinating, often-uplifting, sometimes-sad account of the unique world that exists inside and the stories of the women imprisoned there.
"I've never read a book like Jailbirds before - which shows quite how much we need it. It is very funny and very important and reminds us that women in jail are still women worth listening to. I'm only grateful - for them, and for us - that Mim was listening."
"Mim's warmth and understanding make for a humane, sometimes humorous, and always perceptive account of prison life. This book is a fine achievement."
