What Others Are Saying about This Book . . .
“In her gripping memoir Jennifer Myers offers a startling account of how the pursuit of an elusive American dream can lead us to the depths of the American criminal underbelly. Her book is as much about being human in a hyper-materialistic society as it is about drug culture. When the DEA finally knocks on Myers’ door, she and the reader both see the moment for what it truly is—not so much an arrest as a rescue.” —Tony D’Souza, author of Whiteman and Mule
“Jennifer Myers has written a powerful story of transformation and resilience. Riveting and compelling, this is a must-read.” —Jodie Lawston, Ph.D., Women’s Studies Program, California State University San Marcos, CA; author of Sisters Outside: Radical Activists Working for Women Prisoners; co-editor of Razor Wire Women
“Trafficking the Good Life is a powerful, compelling story of one woman’s journey to hell and back. With honesty, clarity, pathos and humor, Jennifer Myers helps us understand, with real empathy, her downfall, rehabilitation, and resurrection.” —Gloria Killian, Executive Director, the Action Committee for Women in Prison; Exoneree; co-author of Full Circle
“I want all my clients to read this book. Beneath the drug story is a universal theme all women can relate to: the desperate search for self, and the ultimate journey to finding the true feminine voice that longs to emerge in what often feels like a world of additions. I hope parents will read this book before their children reach grade school. Trafficking the Good Life is insightful, educational, and, ultimately, a journey to the heart.” —Moe Ross, addictions specialist; Director, Northwest Community Counseling Services and Hollyhock Retreat Center
“An enthralling first-hand account of lives turned upside down by incarceration and imprisonment. If you want insight into the human condition in general, and the condition of incarceration in particular, read this honest and dramatic portrayal.” —Dennis Sobin, Director, Safe Streets Arts Foundation
