THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the nine-time WNBA all-star and two-time Olympic gold medallist Brittney Griner - a raw, revelatory account of her unfathomable detainment in Russia and her journey home.
On 17 February 2022, Brittney Griner arrived in Moscow ready to spend the WNBA off-season playing for the Russian women's basketball team for which she had been the centrepiece of previous championship seasons. Instead, a security checkpoint became her gateway to hell when she was arrested for mistakenly carrying less than one gram of medically prescribed cannabis oil. Brittney's world was violently upended, a crisis she has never spoken in detail about publicly - until now.
In Coming Home, Brittney shares the harrowing full story of her sudden arrest days before Russia invaded Ukraine; her bewilderment and isolation while navigating a foreign legal system during her trial and sentencing; her emotional and physical anguish as the first American woman ever to be detailed at the IK-2 prison camp, while the #WeAreBG movement rallied for her release; the chilling prisoner swap for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout; and her remarkable rise from hostage to global spokesperson on behalf of America's forgotten. In haunting and vivid detail, Brittney takes readers inside the horrors of a geopolitical nightmare spanning ten months.
And yet Coming Home is more than Brittney's journey from captivity to freedom. In an account as gripping as it is poignant, she shares how her deep love for Cherelle, her college sweetheart and wife of six years, anchored her during their greatest storm; how her family's support pulled her back from the brink; and how hundreds of letters from friends and neighbours lent her the resolve to keep fighting. Coming Home is both a story of survival and a testament to love - the bonds that brought Brittney home to her family and, at last, to herself.
