    An Insider's Account of Love Behind Bars
    <i>''It's so sad,'' she said, ''because you could have been something. You could have gotten to the top. You're smart enough. But now you're going to end up as another dirty, scummy, rotten crimwife.''</i> How far would you go for love? Some women commit crimes to help their lovers; others spend years on the run. Tanya Levin gave up her career as a prison social worker to pursue romance with an inmate. From her first day on the visitor's side of the fence, she became a crimwife. Some women make the leap in the chaos of their loved one's arrest; others, like Levin, choose a relationship knowing the stakes. In her years as a crimwife, Levin met women of all ages and backgrounds who lived behind invisible bars, stuck in the house awaiting their daily six - minute phone call. She became curious about their different paths. How did they fall for the bad boy? How did they cope with a partner behind bars? What made them stay - or finally walk away? In <i>Crimwife</i>, she tells their stories, and her own, with honesty, black humour and an insight that can only come from experience.
