美國宣導公平裁判的先驅、人權律師Bryan Stevenson的回憶錄,窮盡一生,都在與不公正甚至是錯誤的司法體系作鬥爭,保護受到不平等待遇的黑人和窮人。Just Mercy回顧他生平接手的第一個案件,名叫Walter McMillian的年輕男子經歷一天半審訊後,在沒有認罪的情況下被判處了死刑。

「我還沒有做好準備,去見一個罪犯。」翻開書的第一句話。爾後便是當時才23歲的Bryan Stevenson如何將Walter McMillian營救出死囚區,獲得無罪釋放的過程。故事發生地與《梅崗城的故事》一樣,都在阿拉巴馬州。

由於書中都是真實故事,讀來更令人動容,不僅僅是這位鬥士對正義的無畏追尋,更讓人訝異的還有受到屈辱與不公對待的Walter McMillian,他寬恕了那些迫害他的人們,感同身受那些迫害者們也是種族主義的受害者,因為後者的無端仇恨並沒有讓他們自己變得更幸福快樂,深陷惡性循環而無法自拔。

全書很多的不公、憤懣、悲劇,也充滿了勇氣、寬容與憐憫,很多值得深思的空間。


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice--from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time, as seen in the HBO documentary True Justice

"[Bryan Stevenson's] dedication to fighting for justice and equality has inspired me and many others and made a lasting impact on our country."--John Legend

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE STARRING MICHAEL B. JORDAN AND JAMIE FOXX - Named One of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times - The Washington Post - The Boston Globe - The Seattle Times - Esquire - Time

Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn't commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship--and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever.

Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer's coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice.
