Revue de presse

Relentlessly upbeat and uncomplaining... above all, Prisonomics is Vicky Pryce's redemption... one is struck by her mental strength and a talent more common among men than women for compartmentalising emotions. --The Times

Vicky Pryce has done the state some service by writing about her two-month journey through HMP's Holloway and East Sutton Park...Yet for all its personal detachment, this book does not lack fervour...Pryce argues her case capably...(She) convincingly argues the public expenditure case for alternatives to prison for women. Her voice is a welcome support to Jean Corston's cause. --The Observer

Vicky Pryce […] brings her economic expertise to bear on an issue which rarely gets such rational treatment. --Belfast Telegraph

Laden with economic arguments and analytical comments from inside experts. --Total Politics

It was about time somebody wrote this book, about the economics of keeping women in jail. --Benjamin Zephaniah, Daily Express

Pryce's new book Prisonomics, combines her prison experience and economic expertise in a compelling analysis of the human and financial cost of the prison system. --Jewish News

[Prisonomics] is a sobering, compelling read that would serve as a blueprint for any politician who wanted to focus seriously on reform… Her observations brought logical conclusions… Her grasp of the facts is startling. --The Guardian

Présentation de l'éditeur

In March 2013, Vicky Pryce was sentenced to eight months in prison for accepting her ex-husband's penalty points on her driving licence some ten years earlier. After a very public trial, she was sent first to the notorious Holloway and then to East Sutton Park, an open prison in Kent. Inside, she kept a diary documenting her views and experiences; from this diary, Prisonomics was born. Faced with the realities of life behind bars and inspired by the stories of the women she met, Pryce began to research the injustices she found within the prison system. In this informed and important critique, she draws upon her years of experience in economics to call for radical reform and seeks to change how we look at crime and punishment. Prisonomics is not only a personal account of Pryce's experience in prison. It is also a compelling analysis of both the economic and the very human cost of keeping women behind bars.
