“For a book of 16 pages, it packs a punch. Depending on the reader, this story could probably be seen in different ways. I saw it at a story of surviving prison by whatever means dictated to you that kept you as safe as possible.”

“The short piece is set in a privately owned correctional institute. These prisons for profit are becoming all too common in the US. Ms. Mayerson points out correctly that cutting the overhead leads to minimal supervision of the inmates. Within this rather grim framework she crafts a little jewel of a story.”
