This is an exceptional book! It is obvious that Mr. Blakeslee did his homework; the vividness with which he describes the tragic events in Tulia ; the depth of his characters are simply put, "amazing".
I found myself astonished by my visceral captivation and my vitriolic response to the injustice and the institutional coverup.
Much more so than the Tulia defendants/victims, Americans as a lot owe Blakeslee a tremendous debt of gratitude for his fine work in bringing this travesty to light.
I too live in Austin (a recent transplant from Los Angeles). I hope to run into Mr. Blakeslee, as one of his newest fans, and thank him personally!
