An instant New York Times bestseller, Life After Death is an agonizing first-hand account of an innocent man living on Death Row. It is destined to be an explosive classic of memoir. 'A brilliant, haunting, painful, and uplifting narrative of a hopeless childhood, a wrongful conviction, a brutal incarceration, and the beginning of a new life.' John Grisham
Damien Echols was born in 1974 and grew up in Mississippi, Tennessee, Maryland, Oregon, and Arkansas. At age eighteen, he was arrested along with Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley and charged with the deaths of three boys, now known as the Robin Hood Hill murders, in West Memphis, Arkansas. Echols received a death sentence and spent almost eighteen years on Death Row, until he, Baldwin, and Misskelley were released in 2011. Echols is the author of a self-published memoir titled Almost Home. He and his wife, Lorri Davis, live in New York City.
No wonder Echols' autobiography has become a bestseller... It is not often a prisoner survives death row long enough to tell such tales, let alone one who can describe it so articulately... His story is so relentlessly bleak that it makes most other misery memoirs look like Mary Poppins; but it's also so strangely uplifting it ought to be prescribed by therapists as a cure for depression. * Mail on Sunday *
