Club Fed: Living Inside a Women's Prison is the story of Dr. Lynn Hartz's problems with the United States legal system and incarceration in a women's prison. Accused and convicted of "mail fraud," a category for many crimes, she still maintains her innocence. Her lawyer was denied; her doctor wrote the judge a letter explaining her head injury and a memory problem. She was sent to a maximum-security mental health prison for a psychiatric evaluation. Paranoid, schizophrenic, psychotic, and manic-depressive inmates, as well as staff members are discussed. Her incarceration at Alderson Federal Women's Prison, the unjust situation and injustice, comprise most of the book. The spiritual struggle of "Why me?" and personal freedom are two major components throughout the book. People, activities, visits, and finances, as well as conflicts between inmates and staff are described. Thoughts, letters, and conversations with people on the inside and the outside, are included. The appendix includes poetry written in prison, a list of resources for prisoners and their families, and a section of references of work about women and prison.
