When I received my copy of Maggots in My Sweet Potatoes I thought that this would be an easy read a simple read Firstly it looks a bit like a coffee table book I thought that this would be something to browse but just a harsher subject matterBoy was I fooledSusan Madden Lankford was not there at the jailhouse in San Diego simply to snap photos so that we could see the inside She followed many of the prisoners and even some former prisoners who shared their stories and experiences in raw detail This book left uite an impression on me I took it with me to Jomtien a beach community in Thailand to read over a weekend I found myself staying up late into the night to get through the stories this book containsIt should be of no surprise to the reader to find that most all of the women who were researched and interviewed for this book came from broken homes and the majority of them saw drugs and prostitution as the only life they could live Susan Madden Lankford doesn t leave this entirely to the study of these female inmates She does give us background information about the status of the jails and prison systems in America One of the tragic women in the book has been haunting me since reading this book Her name is Kristina EdwardsTo look at the photos of Kristina Edwards you would think that she could even be the girl next door yet we are introduced to her as a pregnant teen runaway eighteen years old at the time the book was researched who gave birth while incarcerated and was convicted of murder Kristina is now doing twenty five to life in a California prison and will never get the chance to raise her daughter That job fell to her estranged mother who wasn t much of a mother to Kristina Later in the week after returning to Bangkok I found myself doing a Google search on Kristina s name and case that s how much this book can get under your skin It can leave you with a feeling of hopelessness or if you are that kind of person it can make you appreciate what you have a home to go home to with someone there who loves youThe book is well photographed and well written The author did a very professional job and I hope she continues on this path Susan Madden Lankford is telling many of the stories that we ignore to our own detriment

A giveaway win so thank you 35 stars rounded up because it was freeI found this a compelling read the photos are interesting but it didn t really tell me anything I didn t know and it left me with a lot of uestions The jail visits and associated interviews and pictures took place over something like 18 months between March 1995 and summer 1996 but I think the book was published in 2008 What took so long There s no 10 year follow up no here s what A B C are doing now It feels like a huge gap for no reason as though she put all her notes away in a cupboard and then dusted them off when she knocked the box off the shelf a decade laterShe seems to have become involved in the lives of some of the inmates buying them clothes for court appearances sitting in on trial days contacting their parents so did she spend 10 years working with them before writing up her notes or just drop them immediately the visits ended It s none of my business but I started thinking about things like that because of the large gap before publicationAt the end she sticks in wodges of stuff from psychiatrists and an excerpt from the California penal code It stuck out like a sore thumb compare to the rest of the book and I didn t feel it added anythingMost of the inmates had variations on the same story traumatic childhood of abuse and neglect drug habit prostitution and repeated trips to jail and usually repeating the problems with their own poorly raised children so it is not exactly a cheerful read in case you were in any doubt
