Today's show is A Child Out of Alcatraz by Tara Ison

"A fascinating and wonderfully evocative first novel about life on Alcatraz - seen through the eyes of a little girl growing up on the Rock in the 1950s. A compelling story, richly evoking a time and place." —Kirkus Reviews

"Ison has a gift...the fearsome plight of Olivia, who narrates much of the novel, is never simplified. It's through her radiant consciousness that Ison's novel achieves a natural, basic morality." —Publishers Weekly
