About the Author
BRITTNEY GRINER is a pioneer, humanitarian, and activist and was named as one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People in 2023. Griner is an NCAA champion, a WNBA champion, and a two-time Olympic gold medalist. Winner of the Best Female Athlete ESPY Award, and a nine-time WNBA All-Star, Griner is one of the most decorated and influential athletes of this generation.
"A visceral, harrowing account of what it's like to be trapped inside Russia's infamous criminal justice system, with its merciless judges and vast labor camps." --The New York Times Book Review

"Compelling . . . An intimate, honest recollection of Griner's time held captive in Russia. Coming Home reads as a deeply personal, publicly powerful documentation of what happened--what is still happening--to her body and mind." --Slate

"Riveting . . . Coming Home delves unflinchingly into the dehumanizing indignities the Olympic athlete suffered during the 10 months she served out of a nine-year sentence." --The Washington Post

"A detailed accounting of Griner's harrowing journey through a Russian legal system known for its corruption . . . Read her book, a 300-plus page deep dive on an experience many of us wouldn't have been able to recover from, and I suspect your empathy will grow - for her and all of humanity . . . The ripple effect in life is real, and if Griner's honesty helps even a dozen readers see the world differently, that impact, her impact, will be felt for years. Griner's book will get people talking to each other, and that's when real change begins." --Lindsay Schnell, USA Today

"A compelling, often chilling look inside today's version of the Gulag." --Kirkus Reviews
