Wow, I wanted more of the why with Gary. Yet the book still remains powerful.
Wow! Just wow! This is a remarkable piece of work. The amount of research that went into this book is incredible. And it’s been so well constructed. The 42 hours flew by. So glad I came across it. Well worth your time - if you have that much to spare. Narration is excellent too!
Gilmore’s story is both tragic and lethal.
Mailer spares no one in the telling.
Goes into depth about a world rarely spoke of but which exist alongside the one we take for granted. Don’t think a guy asking for death penalty would cause such a stir these days, but it was a novelty in the US in the late 1970s.
