“Susan Burton is a national treasure . . . her life story is testimony to the human capacity for resilience and recovery . . . [Becoming Ms. Burton is] a stunning memoir.”
—Nicholas Kristof, inThe New York Times

“Valuable . . . [like Michelle] Alexander’s The New Jim Crow.”
Los Angeles Review of Books


Winner of the prestigious NAACP Image Award, a uniquely American story of trauma, incarceration, and “the breathtaking resilience of the human spirit” (Michelle Alexander)

Widely hailed as a stunning memoir from someone more likely to be locked up or otherwise silenced,Becoming Ms. Burton is the “miraculously inspirational” (Vivian Nixon) life story of Susan Burton, whose organization A New Way of Life has transformed the lives of more than one thousand formerly incarcerated women in Los Angeles.

In this “stirring and moving tour-de-force” (John Legend), Susan takes us on her own journey through the criminal justice system—from growing up amid poverty and abuse in Los Angeles to becoming addicted to cocaine and crack after tragically losing her son, and from cycling in and out of prison for more than fifteen years to her transformation into a powerful advocate for “a more humane justice system guided by compassion and dignity” (Booklist, starred review).

Frequently compared toThe New Jim Crow andJust Mercy,Becoming Ms. Burton is a beautifully written and unforgettable book that humanizes the devastating impact of mass incarceration and powerfully shows the structural and policy changes that can restore the lives of formerly incarcerated people. A reading group guide appears at the back of the book.
