Review

A hilarious and bizarre story that leads where you least expect it. John Safran has for years been one of my favourite journalists - forever pushing the boundaries, funny, startling, a hurricane -- Jon Ronson, author of The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test 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 * Stunning * Men's Style * 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 * Funny and gripping and wonderfully weird . . . It's a tremendous book. I can't praise it too highly -- Louis Theroux A winning combination of memoir, true crime and gonzo journalism . . . a compulsive summer read * Sunday Mail * 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, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil One of the best pieces of sustained, rigorous journalism I've read in twenty years. It is absolutely magnificent - smart, and wry, and emotional too -- Caroline Overington Witty, insightful, compelling - In Cold Blood for our generation -- Eddie Perfect [Safran] has written a marvellous book which I cannot put down * Melbourne Observer *

Book Description

An unlikely journalist, a Mississippi murder plagued by revelations, and a fascinating true-crime story of race, money, sex, and power in the modern American South - all told in the sharply original style of Louis Theroux and Jon Ronson.
