Editorial Reviews

'A trio of faltering young women, each still tethered to the local prison, an inmate rapidly approaching his end-all live inside these pages with haunting, visceral persuasiveness. Dreamlike and startling,You Are Free to Go is poised between the imagined ether and bloody reality, but Sarah Yaw never flinches.'-Michelle Wildgen, author ofBread and Butter andYou're Not You'Sarah Yaw'sYou Are Free to Go presents a large-scale tragedy of the highest order. Its brutal, authentic account of despairing men in prison is haunting on every page. It is terrifying and heartbreaking in its multiple portrayals of the hungering for freedom experienced by family members on the outside. As you read this remarkable novel you will feel you have actually touched the characters' most unrelenting, life-stealing fears-and you will understand the survival of hope occurring when their love endures despite theirfears.'-Kevin McIlvoy, author ofHyssop
