"A Wilderness of Error"
Errol Morris' "A Wilderness of Error" just floored me. Exhaustingly researched and beautifully illustrated, the book questions the conviction of a man accused of horrific crimes, with the same moral outrage that Morris brought to his award-winning film "The Thin Blue Line." It's a haunting piece of art, and a reminder of why physical books still hold so much power."
