        To be able to sit outside on a café terrace with a crème or steaming glass of spiced vin chaud, to watch the world walk by while sheltered behind the pages of a book, to breathe in the aromas of Paris at the cusp of Christmas (smoked chestnuts, anise seed, orange liqueur), in short, to exist outside in the city, is a joy worthy of Thanksgiving. Following a public education and legislative campaign by our predecessor organization, Inside the Box, Stop Solitary CT has focused on developing a coalition of key stakeholders in and around Connecticut who are opposed to solitary confinement in order to pass legislation, educate the public, and monitor changes in the state’s use of.

      Prolonged solitary confinement has become a widespread and standard practice in U.S. prisons—even though it consistently drives healthy prisoners insane, makes the mentally ill sicker, and, according to the testimony of prisoners, threatens to reduce life to a living death. In this profoundly important and original book, Lisa Guenther examines the death-in-life experience of solitary.   Anyone who has spent time in Paris, of any class or gender or race, will have observed that Paris is a city designed for pedestrians. Apart from the café—that timeless Parisian institution to which I dedicated fifteen hundred words a couple of weeks ago—the sidewalk is the most democratic space in this gilded capital city. Indeed, the romantic allure of the café is wedded to the casual.

      This compelling collection of stories told directly by people personally impacted by solitary confinement is the first book in a new Voice of Witness series with Haymarket Books. An estima Americans are held in solitary confinement in prisons across the country. National Book Award. New York Times Notable. Washington Post Best Book. About the Book.
