Last Words compiled by Claire Cameron

Toronto-based writer Claire Cameron, author of The Line Painter, compiled a collection of last words uttered by executed prisoners in Texas. Her piece ran in the New York Times here. I thought it was incredibly affecting and weirdly poetic.

Very moving, no question. A sharp focus, nowhere to go.

My goodness. I looked at the Texas Website. They sure kill a lot of people down there!
