This week’s book up for grabs:

The Fear of 13

By Nick Yarris

This is the memoir of Nick Yarris, who was wrongly convicted of rape and murder and spent 23 years on Death Row. To keep sane while he was in prison, Nick focused on educating himself – including learning about triskaidekaphobia, the fear of 13, which gives the book its name. Later, as the technology developed, Nick pressed for post-conviction DNA testing, which eventually led to him being acquitted of all charges.

Following his ordeal, Nick tells of his experiences with immediacy and passion, and narrates his tale to brilliant charismatic effect both here and in the film of the same name, released in 2015. Widely critically acclaimed, the memoir adds a further dimension and more detail to Nick’s compelling story.
