“’Sup, Po? Back again, are you? You can’t stand sleeping in your own house? You like it here too much, huh?”
“It’s the cops, Pa... I had nothing on me. But they brought me in anyway.” Po was saying this to Pa Dab.
“Oh, don’t you worry about that. They’ll find you something.”
The latest from two-time winner of the Chommanard Book Prize, Caged: Women’s Voices from a Bangkok Prison details the author’s three years in prison for a crime she did not commit. Eri brings to light the lives of women behind bars. While many cannot get past the strict regulations and poor living conditions, for Eri, there is room for much more. Throughout this book, she teaches us how to live our life to the fullest, maintain our positivity, and never lose hope.
