Summary

Oprah's Book Club Summer 2018 Selection

The Instant New York Times Bestseller

A powerful, revealing story of hope, love, justice, and the power of reading by a man who spent thirty years on death row for a crime he didn't commit.

"An amazing and heartwarming story, it restores our faith in the inherent goodness of humanity."
--Archbishop Desmond Tutu

In 1985, Anthony Ray Hinton was arrested and charged with two counts of capital murder in Alabama. Stunned, confused, and only twenty-nine years old, Hinton knew that it was a case of mistaken identity and believed that the truth would prove his innocence and ultimately set him free.

But with no money and a different system of justice for a poor black man in the South, Hinton was sentenced to death by electrocution. He spent his first three years on Death Row at Holman State Prison in agonizing silence--full of despair and anger toward all those who had sent an innocent man to his death. But as Hinton realized and accepted his fate, he resolved not only to survive, but find a way to live on Death Row. For the next twenty-seven years he was a beacon--transforming not only his own spirit, but those of his fellow inmates, fifty-four of whom were executed mere feet from his cell. With the help of civil rights attorney and bestselling author of Just Mercy, Bryan Stevenson, Hinton won his release in 2015.

With a foreword by Stevenson, The Sun Does Shine is an extraordinary testament to the power of hope sustained through the darkest times. Destined to be a classic memoir of wrongful imprisonment and freedom won, Hinton's memoir tells his dramatic thirty-year journey and shows how you can take away a man's freedom, but you can't take away his imagination, humor, or joy.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* In 2015, Hinton was released after serving nearly 30 years half of his life on Alabama's death row for crimes he didn't commit. His memoir, collaboratively written with Hardin, is a troubling, moving, and ultimately exalting journey through the decades Hinton lived under the threat of death while an unjust system that refused to acknowledge mistakes failed him repeatedly. After barely speaking during his first years on the row, Hinton's natural friendliness and compassion compelled him to connect with his fellow inmates and start a book club. As he experienced the executions of these new friends, Hinton learned to rely on his imagination which took him from his five-by-seven cell to places he'd never been and never take for granted the unconditional love of his mother and best friend, who never missed a visiting day. Hope eventually appeared in the form of God's best lawyer, Bryan Stevenson, founder of the Equal Justice Initiative and author of Just Mercy (2014). It would take Stevenson and his team, working tirelessly, another 15 years to win Hinton back his freedom. Even more powerful than the crushing terror of serving a death sentence while innocent are Hinton's refusal to be diminished by it and his unwavering commitment to forgiveness. Lighting unfathomable places, Hinton's gripping story asks readers to do the same. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: With a huge print run, Hinton's incredible story and social-justice star Stevenson, who wrote the foreword, will draw major attention.--Bostrom, Annie Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this intense memoir, Hinton recounts his three-decade nightmare: awaiting execution for crimes he didnt commit. In 1985, Hinton, then 29, was charged with a series of violent robberies as well as the murders of two restaurant managers in Birmingham, Ala. Hinton passed a polygraph test and was in a locked warehouse during one robbery, but that didnt prevent an all-white jury from finding him guilty after only two hours (the death penalty recommendation took another 45 minutes). Hinton here provides a convincing description ofcontinued segregation and injustice in the deep South that cages the underclass as effectively as prison walls. His depictions of prison life are wrenching, as when he recalls the 1987 electric chair execution of Wayne Ritter and how the smell of Rittersburning fleshburned my nose and stung my throat. Forced to hone his mind to withstand overwhelming isolation, Hinton read voraciously and studied his case. With the unwavering support of his mother and his best friend, Hinton created a fulfilling life for himself, which included running a book club for death row inmates. After many years, his dogged pursuit of justice led civil rights attorney Bryan Stephenson to adopt his cause. Hinton was freed from prison in 2015, and now works as a motivational speaker. Hintons life is one of inspiration, which he wonderfully relays here in bitingly honest prose. (Mar.)"
