Strange Piece of Paradise
Take a look at these two posts from the Critical Mass Blog, a review and an interview with author Terri Jentz about her book, Strange Piece of Paradise. Her book describes her near fatal attack while camping thirty years ago and her attempt to go back to the scene of the crime to come to terms with it. The book has received terrific reviews, been nominated for awards and Critical Mass excerpts this review: " Vanity Fair columnist James Wolcott writes, "Start this book, and you won’t stop. Memoir, detective story, travelogue, time capsule, horror movie come to life (and swinging a hatchet), obsessive manhunt, a tale of American innocence dashed and left for dead—Terri Jentz’s Strange Piece of Paradise has the narcotic force of a nightmare that won’t let go its grip until the truth is found and set free."
