BOOKS: "In This Timeless Time"

A new book, “In this Timeless Time: Living and Dying on Death Row in America,” authors Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian explore the life of death row inmates in Texas and in other states. Jackson and Christian capture, through words and pictures, the daily experiences of inmates while also highlighting arbitrary judicial processes related to capital punishment. Sister Helen Prejean, author of Dead Man Walking, said, “With absolute fairness and profound honesty, Bruce Jackson and Diane Christian carry us into the tragic world of a group of prisoners living on a Texas Death Row. Through unforgettable stories and photos, we come to feel the suffering, guilt, and confusion of these men, as well as their inextinguishable human dignity.” Bruce Jackson is James Agee Professor of American Culture and SUNY Distinguished Professor of English at SUNY Buffalo. Diane Christian is SUNY Distinguished Teacher Professor of English at SUNY Buffalo.
