Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan are foreign correspondents for the Washington Post , and they head that paper’s London Bureau. In 2003, they won the Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for their coverage of Mexico’s criminal justice system. And they are the authors of “The Prison Angel: Mother Antonia’s Journey from Beverly Hill to a Life of Service in a Mexican Jail�, just published in paperback.

This is the story of Mary Clarke, a woman who lives and works in a Mexican prison in Tijuana. We began our interview with Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan – who incidentally – are married, asking Mary first, how did they come across the woman known as Mother Antonia? (roll tape#1 o.q. “this is over�)

That’s Washington Post reporter Kevin Sullivan, along with reporter Mary Jordan. They’re book about the woman known as Mother Antonia, “The Prison Angel�, has just been published in paperback. We’ll hear more from them on the Evening News next week.
