- Scott Turow is the well-known author of three huge best-sellers: Presumed Innocent (made into a movie with Harrison Ford), The Burden of Proof, and Pleading Guilt. Turow’s life is traced, from his boyhood conflict with demanding parents, his early struggles as a writer, graduate school at Stanford in the turbulent early 1970s, a stint as a creative writing teacher, legal boot camp at Harvard, down to the triumphs of his three best-selling novels — coming from his own experiences as a criminal defence lawyer and ex-U.S. Attorney who prosecuted corrupt judges and officials in the Chicago court system — to his current work.
