grassrootswritersguild (Julia Simpson-Urrutia):
“All the stories are excellent . . . I highly recommend this compelling collection . . .It makes you think, and will stay with you for a long, long time.”
From Kirkus Reviews:
Goodwin’s potent debut drama is a series of stories about the U.S. rehabilitation system and how criminal acts affect the lives of criminals and victims alike. . . a collection of prison-centric stories that astonishes with its vibrancy and strong characters.
Named to Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2015.
This is storytelling at its finest and I found myself truly caring about some of these characters, even the ones who were guilty of committing heinous crimes. Goodwin gives each character and story a human element that allows the reader to slip into the story in a way that few authors can achieve…“The Stephen Hawking Death Row Fan Club” is a very strong short story collection that is sure to satisfy any reader.
