The Fact of a Body: A Murder and a Memoir

It is not easy to write true crime that is respectful, compassionate, and curious. It’s not easy to bring your own story into someone else’s story. And yet this book manages to do both of those things. It also manages to break your heart every few pages. The story of a law student whose first case becomes the object of her obsession, and the story of two victims of sexual abuse, it’s not an easy read but it is an incredibly affecting one.
