In today's NYT, Dave Itzkoff profiles death-row inmate turned memoirist Damien Echols, who was one-third of the West Memphis Three. The feature includes some really striking photographs by Todd Heisler. The profile is pegged with the release of Echols' new book, "Life After Death." In a separate NYT review, Janet Maslin describes it as "a haunting book." (thumbnail: photo of Echols by Peter Ash Lee for NYT)
