About In Warm Blood: Prison And Privilege, Hurt And Heart

Product Description *** 2015 USA Best Book Award finalist in the Multi-Cultural:Non-Fiction and True Crime: Non-Fiction categories *** 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. Review *In Warm Blood* is an intense and redemptive journey into the best of the human condition. Two people, separated by culture and conditions, discover each other and themselves through a series of letters. Their journey is a revelatory experience through which each discovers that, beyond our superficial stereotypes, one can find inspiration and hope even in the most distressing and deadening environments. --Thomas Corbett Ph.D. Associate Director (Ret.) Institute for Research on Poverty, University of Wisconsin-Madison *In Warm Blood* is an in-depth exploration of worlds that could not be more different by race and class. And yet there are clear connections. It is unflinching as the authors face what we so often refuse to see. It plumbs the depths, even with brave humor, of our correctional system and all the lost talent, unrealized potential that results from our blindness and numbness and disinterest in knowing. We owe the authors a great debt. --Carol Lobes, Former Director of Dane County Human Services, Madison, WI This is a compelling and often unnerving literary dialogue highlighting separations of class, race, education, opportunity, and gender. It should be a wake-up call to our prison systems which fail everyone especially those whom we are quick to sentence, unwilling to treat or rehabilitate. You will no longer wonder why we have such a high rate of recidivism and why those whom we incarcerate are, upon their release, meaner and more violent than when we first sentenced them. It is also a compelling argument as to why we must work upstream to solve the conditions that hurt us all. --The Rev. David C. Couper., Former Chief of Police,Madison, WI.
