New York Times Bestseller | Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Best Nonfiction | A New York Times Notable Book | A Time Top 10 Nonfiction Book | One of Esquire's 5 Most Important Books of the Year | A Washington Post Notable Work of Nonfiction | One of The Boston Globe's Best Nonfiction Books of the Year | A Seattle Times Best Book | An American Library Association Notable Book | Finalist for the Kirkus Reviews Prize. A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice-from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time. Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship-and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer's coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
