Book Review: Accidental Felon
Author Gloria Wolk has a commendable motivation in writing a federal criminal justice thriller, but her book is unimaginative and contains a jumble of clichéd situations.

Book Review: My Beloved World
The book’s jacket is significant. Across the top, the author’s name appears simply as Sonia Sotomayor, not as Justice Sotomayor. Across the bottom is the title My Beloved World, taken from “To Puerto Rico (I Return)” by poet José Gautier Benítez. And in the background is a large picture of a smiling justice, not in judicial robes but in an elegant black suit. These details foreshadow what lies inside the book — the story of Sonia Sotomayor before she became a judge; a woman sustained and propelled by her proud Puerto Rican heritage; a woman who openly and honestly takes us not just to Princeton and Yale Law School, but to the lonelier places of her life such as her father’s alcoholism and her failure to secure a job offer after working as a summer associate.

TV Review: Gideon's Army

“How can you represent those people?” It is a question every public defender has heard. It often comes from people who are well meaning in their concerns about criminal justice but who harbor fundamental misperceptions about the work we do and the people we represent. Gideon’s Army, which will air on HBO July 1st, provides a definitive answer to that question.

TV Review: West of Memphis

The documentary West of Memphis actually tells two stories, that of a criminal prosecution that resulted in unjust murder convictions of three Arkansas teenagers and that of the media, first in reporting the case and then as a driving force in challenging the convictions.
