Product description

Review

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. (Pandora Sykes)

Mim's warmth and understanding make for a humane, sometimes humorous, and always perceptive account of prison life. This book is a fine achievement. (Ken Loach)

Jailbirds is a very real and powerful account of living and working in a women's prison - with all the complexities, pain, frustrations and hope to be encountered there. It's a really accessible, engaging read and we will be recommending it to new staff as part of their induction. (Kate Paradine, CEO of Women in Prison)

Skinner's warmth and empathy radiates from the pages in this eye-opening read. Humbling, hopeful and wryly hilarious in equal measure, it serves as a powerful reminder about the importance that women's voices - even behind bars - deserve to be heard. (SUNDAY HERALD)

Book Description

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.
