We are excited to announce that Bryan Stevenson’s award-winning Just Mercy will be available in paperback starting tomorrow. The New York Times Bestseller presents the story of EJI, the people we represent, and the importance of confronting injustice. Just Mercy “is as gripping as it is disturbing,” wrote Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Desmond Tutu, “as if America’s soul has been put on trial.”
New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof has called the book “searing” and “moving.” It won the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Nonfiction and an NAACP Image Award, and has been named a New York Times Notable Book of 2014, TIME Magazine Top 10 Nonfiction of 2014, Esquire Top 5 Most Important Books of 2014, Washington Post Notable Work of Nonfiction, and an American Library Association Notable Book.
A finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and Kirkus Reviews Prize, Just Mercy is also one of the Boston Globe Best Books of the Year and the Seattle Times Best Books of the Year.
We are thrilled that so many readers have been touched by the book and excited that the paperback edition may reach even more people. Click here for more information about Just Mercy. Order your copy here and check here for events with Bryan Stevenson.
