In this fictionalized biography, authors Judith Gwinn Adrian and DarRen Morris share stories of privilege and prison, hurt and heart: epistolary accounts of two people raised in the parallel universes of southeast Wisconsin and northern Illinois. After serving three months of a 15-year sentence for armed robbery, Judy’s father’s privilege allowed him to join the military and then become a physician and medical researcher. Some of his research involved human experimentation on prisoners. And DarRen, at the age of 17, was sentenced to life in prison for murder, with a first possible parole date of 100 years. He has now served more than half his life in Wisconsin maximum security prisons. He has become a Rastafarian and a uniquely talented artist. Judy teaches restorative justice, as well as other subjects, at a small college in Wisconsin.
