Description

'The elegance of this book is that its axis is a resounding 'perhaps' ...It is this moral ambivalence that draws readers to the true crime genre, and Safran nails it' Weekend Australian 'Mississippi is like a trampoline for [Safran's] eccentricities. But the form and content of the story bring out an unfamiliar side of him' Sydney Morning Herald 'A winning combination of memoir, true crime and gonzo journalism ...a compulsive summer read' Sunday Mail 'Funny and gripping and wonderfully weird ...It's a tremendous book. I can't praise it too highly' Louis Theroux 'Witty, insightful, compelling - In Cold Blood for our generation' Eddie Perfect '[Safran] has written a marvellous book which I cannot put down' Melbourne Observer 'Now I know what to recommend people who liked Them' Jon Ronson (The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test) 'Stunning' Men's Style 'John Safran's captivating inquiry into a murder in darkest Mississippi is by turns informative, frightening and hilarious. It is enlivened by a swarm of creepy locals and a torrent of astonishing details--such as hedge clippers put to surgical use in the performance of an official autopsy.' John Berendt, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
