Summary
  • "In 2000, Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen embarked on a journey across America - one that would give them a glimpse of the darker side of the United States' justice system and, at the same time, reveal to them just how resilient the human spirit can be. They were a pair of young actors from New York who had the idea to travel cross-country and interview the exonerated - men and women who had been sentenced to die for crimes they didn't commit, who spent anywhere from two to twenty-two years on death row, and who were freed amidst overwhelming evidence of their innocence - and create a play from their words. And, along the way, they fell in love."
  • "The result of Jessica and Erik's adventure was the award-winning show the Exonerated, which ran to sold-out houses in New York City and toured the country to audiences that included bishops, governors, senators, Supreme Court justices, and a former attorney general. Part social commentary, part love story, this memoir is the story of the creation of The Exonerated and one couple's adventure as they learn, through the stories of those who had lost so much, what freedom truly means."--BOOK JACKET
