True Story is a ten-year-old memoir and crime story that might have drifted off your backlist. It’s soon to be released as a film; the book itself got terrific reviews in 2005. It’s worth another pass on the paperback displays.
“Astute and hypnotically absorbing . . . there’s a burning sincerity and beautifully modulated writing on every page.”
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Combines crime and intellectual heft…could well become a classic of the genre.
— Washington Post Book World
