THE FURTHEST CITY LIGHT
A novel as well as an emotionally accurate memoir.
Rachel, I told myself, she’s as smart as you are. This one’s going to hurt if it doesn’t come out right. Of course the junkie in me—addicted from day one to the drama of my chosen career—was almost whimpering with joy. Damn the torpedoes, this was the kind of case every public defender was born for: the chance to help, to explain, to protect, to defend, to make right. Hell, the chance to change the course of another person’s life. Hubris? You bet.
