This chapter examines the narrative persuasion lessons that can be learned by post-conviction relief practitioners in death penalty cases from popular storytellers. It suggests that recent creative popular nonfiction provides a rich terrain for exploration by post-conviction relief practitioners attempting to retell successfully and truthfully a once-told story. It explains that practitioners can reconcile nonfiction narrative practices with traditional legal and analytical practice to retell difficult, complex, and compelling stories.

Keywords:   relief practitioners, post-conviction proceedings, death penalty, narrative persuasion, narrative practices, nonfiction
