Q: We always talk about books that WE want. Let’s turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?
A: The last book I gave as a gift was Life After Death
by Damien Echols. (See my review here
.) I gave it to my true crime-loving cousin. Life After Death is a beautiful memoir, written by a man who was wrongfully convicted and sentenced to death row for the murders of three young boys. He and two co-defendants were exonerated, due largely to the tireless efforts of celebrities including Johnny Depp, Peter Jackson, and Eddie Vedder. If you’ve heard of the West Memphis Three case, or if you’ve seen the HBO Paradise Lost documentaries, then you’re already familiar with Echols.
