Paul's Case: The Kingston Letters

Передня обкладинка
Insomniac Press, 1997 - 185 стор.
With two of North America's most notorious serial killer / sex slayers as its focus, Lynn Crosbie's novel, Paul's Case, dissects and pathologizes the horrific world of Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka. In the true-crime tradition of Norman Mailer and a host of others, this book is a remarkable work of theoretical fiction that sensitively, imaginatively, and systematically analyses the abduction and murder of Bernardo and Homolka's innocent victims while exploring, in startlingly graphic detail, the cultural effects of the shocking revelations and controversy surrounding the capture, trial, testimony, videotape evidence, and incarceration of the almost unthinkable monstrous pair. This is compelling, moving, impossible work: a book which will shock, terrify, and anger you: a book which will break your heart and change you. You will never forget Paul's Case.
