It’s 2003 and Romy Hall is at the start of two consecutive life sentences at Stanville Women’s Correctional Facility deep in California’s Central Valley Outside is the world from. 35 stars I read an in depth article in New Yorker Magazine that made it apparent why Rachel Kushner can so vividly bring her characters in this book to life The link to the article is below She followed an inmate at a California prison because she wanted to have people in her life that the State of California rendered invisible to others She brings these real people to us through a cast of characters in her fictional account of life in prison This book definitely depicts experiences that are far removed from mine Not just in the prison but the world where the prisoners came from strip cubs doing and dealing drugs hit jobs getting beaten enduring abuse as children I found this stressful to read and it was definitely out of my comfort zone But that s not a bad thing as I learned It s vulgar at times brutal a lot of the time raw most of the time and I assume pretty realistic given the research that the author has doneWhile we come to know the stories of a number of characters this felt like it was mostly Romy Hall s story A single mother formerly a stripper at The Mars Room Romy has killed a man who stalked her is serving two consecutive life sentences plus 6 years There are other inmates whose stories we learn Fernandez Bette and Doc in the men s prison We come to know someone from the outside Gordon Hauser a prison teacher who gets involved in the lives of some of the inmates mailing letters buying them books flower seeds a paint set Gordon seems to reflect what Kushner wants us to see that these inmates are human beings It s about the flaws in our society the flaws in a justice system that won t allow someone to tell their side of the story the flaws in our penal system It is also about the flaws of inmates at a California prison whose fate on the one hand is a result of their choices However their circumstances their lives before incarceration make it difficult to be unsympathetic I received an advanced copy of this book from Scribner through NetGalley and Edelweiss
