Cell Mates/Soul Mates is based on extensive research by the author
into a largely neglected aspect of imprisonment: the development of
intimate relationships by 'inside' and 'outside' partners despite

material and extended extracts from interviews with people who have
experienced the phenomenon. These suggest that - against the odds -
the partners concerned often remain committed to each other.
Despite the precarious nature of the enterprise - and sometimes
hostile reactions from people around them - they stay together and
build a new life in which crime becomes a thing of the past,
something which should be an encouragement to a range of people
concerned with offending behaviour, sentence planning and release
decisions - where the role of the prisoner's family may be a key
