Editorial Reviews

Review

"Not only is this a brilliant and deeply felt book, it is also a fascinating and necessary coda to American culture’s obsession with serial killers." ––Nicola Maye Goldberg, CrimeReads

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful. Human. Poetic.
By @makeandcollect on January 7, 2018
At first I wasn’t sure aboutthis book, but it’s a really quick read and after I finished I was stunned by how quietly beautiful, sad, and ultimately humanizing it was.

Really an amazing way to explore such a personal yet painfully public event.

Definitely recommend to anyone interested in: poetry, true crime, psychology.

And maybe this is my own weird thing, and I know I’m about to compare it to a fiction story, but this really made me think of The Diary of Laura Palmer. I read it earlier in 2017 and it also had a sad, poetic, deeply human core that I identified with. Anyway. Read this one! It will take you max three hours!
