Amy Friedman - Desperado's Wife
When author and newspaper columnist Amy Friedman walked into a federal penitentiary to research and write about prison life, she never expected to fall in love with a man serving a life sentence for second degree murder. No one, Friedman included, imagined she would ultimately marry him. Desperado’s Wife ($25.95) follows the couple’s love story, from their wedding in a prison chapel to struggles with prison officials and newspaper bosses, from the blossoming love for the daughters she helped to raise to conjugal visits with her husband in prison trailers and ultimately to her husband’s release on parole and the dissolution of the marriage.
Amy Friedman is the author of the popular syndicated newspaper feature Tell Me A Story, as well as a former columnist in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. She has written several memoirs and hundreds of essays and short stories. She teaches creative writing at UCLA Extension. She is also an editor and ghostwriter. www.amyfriedman.net
