The Autobiography Of An Execution
David DowOver the past 20 years, attorney David Dow has defended more than 100 death row inmates. Many of his clients have died. While most were guilty, some might have been innocent. His book, The Autobiography of an Execution, is a gripping chronicle of a life lived at paradoxical extremes: Witnessing executions and then coming home to the loving embrace of his wife and young son. Waging moral battles on behalf of people who have committed abhorrent crimes. Fighting for life in America’s death penalty capital, within a criminal justice system full of indifferent and ineffectual judges. Racing against time on behalf of clients who have no more time. David R. Dow is a professor of law at the University of Houston Law Center and an internationally recognized figure in the fight against the death penalty. He is the founder and director of the Texas Innocence Network. He joins us from Houston, Texas.
