Books
The funny, insightful and moving account of what happens to a close, loving middle-class family when the father is unexpectedly thrown in jail. Mel Jacob's revealing account is the story of the family left behind. It chronicles the grief, the stigma and the conversational minefields of her husband's whereabouts, as well as the logistical problems of making a baby sibling for her two children, and why it's not appropriate to tell people that Daddy's in jail.
