Annotation:
Scott Turow fans will remember Alejandro "Sandy" Stern as the defense attorney who got Rusty Sabich off the hook in Turow's genre-defining legal thriller PRESUMED INNOCENT. With BURDEN OF PROOF, Turow explores this character more fully--in the midst of a family tragedy. The suicide of his wife, Clara, forces Stern to face many truths--about his family, his children, and his job--that he has repressed for far too long.
Author Bio
Scott Turow
Scott Turow is one of the most prominent and influential writers in the genre of legal thrillers. A very successful lawyer, he has maintained a career as an attorney while writing roughly one book every three years. Many of his books have topped bestsellers lists, including his 1987 debut novel, PRESUMED INNOCENT, and the much anticipated sequel published in 2010, INNOCENT. Other popular novels include PERSONAL INJURIES and BURDEN OF PROOF, which was adapted as a television mini series. He has also published several works of non-fiction, including ONE L, his first-hand account of the notoriously terrible first year of law school, as well as short pieces for magazines and newspapers.||Born in Chicago, Turow graduated from Amherst College before moving to the west coast to study creative writing at Stanford University. A few years after finishing at Stanford, Turow enrolled in Harvard Law School, graduating in 1978 and going to work as an Assistant United States Attorney in Chicago. A partner at a Chicago firm, Turow balances his legal and writing careers with charitable and pro bono work, such as serving on boards and playing in a for-charity rock band with other writers. His writing has received critical acclaim--including the Robert F. Kennedy Book Award and Time Magazine's Best Work of Fiction award. Turow married the painter Annette Weisberg in 1971, has three children, and lives near Chicago.
