Book review

This book offers a unique and telling insight into life in the claustrophobic and sometimes violent atmosphere of London's Holloway Prison. This was what author and artist Hilary Beauchamp came to know only too well. It is a compelling, true life account of Beauchamp's experiences serving as a creative arts instructor in this famous north-London prison. Beauchamp 'lifts the lid' on life inside, making the book a must for students of women's imprisonment. Her inside story is also a 'Rough Guide' as to what to expect when entering a closed institution as an outsider. Holloway Prison: An Inside Story is an ideal primer on women's issues within the penal system. The book's unusually perceptive description of the ways in which imprisonment impacts women adds a new dimension to the literature on this topic. (In 1992, artist Hilary Beauchamp was awarded an MBE for her teaching services to creative arts at Holloway Prison and earlier, in September 2008, she won the ITV London Teacher of the Year Award.)
