With quirky artwork and an honest voice, this graphic memoir goes into deph as to why people- especially women- love true crime. If you're subscribed to the podcasts, if you've watched the documentaries, if you are constantly looking over your shoulder, this is for you. Also great if you have no idea why your girlfriend/wife/significant other is so obsessed with the Zodiac killer.
A humorous graphic investigation of the author's obsession with true crime, the murders that have most captivated her throughout her life, and a love letter to her fellow true-crime fanatics.
Why is it so much fun to read about death and dismemberment? In Murder Book, lifelong true-crime obsessive and New Yorker cartoonist Hilary Fitzgerald Campbell tries to puzzle out the answer. An unconventional graphic exploration of a lifetime of Ann Rule super-fandom, amateur armchair sleuthing, and a deep dive into the high-profile murders that have fascinated the author for decades, this is a funny, thoughtful, and highly personal blend of memoir, cultural criticism, and true crime with a focus on the often-overlooked victims of notorious killers.
