"The Crying Wall takes the reader into the 'reality' of prison - not through facts and figures, but through tears and screams, blood and sweat and pain... [T]his book... offers a type of truth that numbers can't. Enjoy your reading - if you can." Joycelyn M. Pollock, Professor of Criminal Justice, Texas State University at San Marcos and author of several books, including Prisons and Prison Life.
"The moving stories that comprise The Crying Wall show that the costs in human suffering wrought by our prisons should be too much for us to bear..., admonishing us to question our seemingly thoughtless commitment to these brutal institutions." Barbara Owen, Professor of Criminology, California State University, Fresno, and author of In the Mix: Struggle and Survival in a Women's Prison.
"These stories bring the reader face-to-face with the emotional reality of the prison, a monstrous enterprise that has grown like a cancer in our society. People seeking a full understanding of the prison must read this book." John Irwin, Professor Emeritus, San Francisco State University and author of several books, including It's All About Time,, and most recently, The Warehouse Prison: Disposal of the New Dangerous Class.
"The Crying Wall evokes the pulse of prison life and death through soul-searing imagery and eye-opening glimmers of brilliance and humanity that fight their way through the web of chaos, brutality and fear that is daily prison life." Judith Trustone, Director, SageWriters; author, Celling America's Soul: Torture & Transformation In our Prisons
