This week, I just finished up Scottsboro by Ellen Feldman. This is a great bit of historical fiction about the Scottsboro Boys (if you don’t know about this case, you really should). This passage, a quote from one of the boys, Andy Wright, 19 years after he was falsely accused of rape, shows a whole lot more forgiveness than I think I would muster in his place. It’s a very good book and you’ll see the review here later this week.
“I’m not mad because the girl lied about me. If she’s still living, I feel sorry for her because I don’t guess she sleeps much at night.”
What’s teasing you this week?
