Innocent until proven guilty. A staple of the justice system. And yet, grievous mistakes are made, and sometimes the innocent are sent away for years, their lives changed forever. It’s hard to imagine what that would be like…or it was, until now.

Anatomy of Innocence pairs bestselling authors with individuals who were wrongly convicted, only to be exonerated years later, offering them the chance to share their stories. And each tale, however short or graphic, adds a startling layer of understanding to the reader. Sometimes, it’s the betrayal that comes with trusting the justice system and being punished for doing so. Other times, it’s the suffocating horror of being locked away. And sometimes, it’s the disgust raised by dirty cops strong-arming confessions from the innocent.

These stories are frighteningly effective, appalling, and infuriating in equal measure, only enhanced by the skills of the storytellers using their creative gifts to bring these experiences to life.

A heartbreaking and important read, Anatomy of Innocence puts a crucial and underreported issue in the spotlight for all to see. Here’s hoping it leads to more exonerations in the future.
