Waiting For an Echo
Waiting for An Echo

“An uncommonly beautiful writer, Dr. Christine Montross brings a scientist’s rigor and a clinician’s compassion to her examination of the profoundly broken U.S. incarceration system. Waiting For an Echo lays bare the appalling human suffering that occurs every day in our prisons and jails – and points us toward a better way.”
David C. Fathi, Director of the American Civil Liberties Union National Prison Project

“Thoughtful and deeply compassionate…[Falling Into the Fire] is a fluid meditation on the limits of medicine and how Montross learned to care for ‘people nearly all of whom are in profound moments of crisis.’…This is not a doctor puzzling clues together like some real-world Dr. House; this is a doctor struggling to sit with the uncomfortable questions that arise when medicine doesn't have any answers.” —Los Angeles Times
