This first Vintage books Trade paperback edition was published in 1994. On the blank page directly opposite of the title page there is a 2" by 4" card that is very neatly attached and reads "To Camille - Helen Prejean". The book is in excellent condition and does not appear to have been handled very much. No tears, no writing except by the author and no banged corners. There are, however a couple of bent corners in the center of the text. They realy do not detract. In 1982 Sister Helen Prejean became the spiritual advisor to the convicted killer of two teenagers who was sentenced to die in the electric chair in Louisiana. A friendship and intimacy developed and this book is Prejeans story of her profoundly moving journey through our system of capital punishment. Made into a terrific movie with Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn the book is a great read. It's very dificult to find a copy of this book that is signed by the author.
