Couldn’t Keep it to Myself by Wally Lamb and the Women of York Correctional Institution

lamb, wally - couldn't keep it to myselfthumbs_side ) This book is basically a compilation of short stories about the lives of different women within the York Correctional Institution. It’s good, but not as good as Wally Lamb’s writing. I didn’t realize it wasn’t actually written by him when I picked it up.

The stories range from child physical and sexual abuse to tales of crime and punishment. It delves deeper into what influences crime and the different ways people grow up. The authors are good writers, but none of the stories hit me deep the way Wally Lamb’s She’s Come Undone did.
