Interrupted Life

Joanne Archibald

University of California Press

This chapter describes life in prison. The author was sentenced to a year and a day in federal prison when she was three months pregnant. Because her court case took a long time, she was able to give birth to her son outside. He was seven months old when the author went in. She talks about the procedures inside the prison, a roommate from Southern California, her job as a cook inside the prison, and how she experienced sexual harassment from a guy who cooked with her.
