George Critchlow Releases New Memoir – The Lifer and the Lawyer

George Critchlow is pleased to announce the release of his new memoir, The Lifer and the Lawyer. The narrative adeptly and unflinchingly raises questions about childhood neglect, unequal opportunity, excessive sentencing, racial bigotry, and the role of faith and reflection in redeeming broken lives.

The Lifer and the Lawyer: A Story of Punishment, Penitence, and Privilege is about Michael Anderson, an aging African American man who grew up poor and abused on Chicago’s south side, then came to Eastern Washington, and has now spent the last forty-three years in Washington prisons. The book describes Michael’s early life of trauma and crime, his trial and sentence before a bigoted judge, his moral and spiritual transformation in prison, and a curious friendship that started in 1979 when the author was a young lawyer appointed to represent Anderson on multiple felony charges. Partly about race and white privilege and partly about a criminal justice system that keeps harmless old men in prison, the book also raises larger questions about faith, free will, and what it is that determines our individual destinies.

The Lifer and the Lawyer is available for purchase in print and ebook formats.
