bookshelves: 2011, reportage, true-life
Read in October, 2011

A wonderfully thorough and vivid account of the lives, motives, and remberances surrounding the now-famous Clutter family murders.I did scan my eyes over some of the more lengthy depositions and other "evidence" that only served to show how lazy the author was... Other more imaginatively crafted chapters show how narrative storytelling can enhance the factual reportage. Reading this I was reminded of John Krakauer's Under the Banner of Heaven, which I'm sure was influenced by this book.
