Here’s an essay I wrote for Crime Reads about why books about rape are labeled memoir instead of true crime.
For JSTOR Daily, I wrote a critique of addiction memoirs featuring Leslie Jamison’s The Recovering: Intoxication and its Aftermath.
I wrote about crime fiction’s rape problem for Literary Hub (since moved to Crime Reads).
I wrote about Karen Dionne’s The Marsh King’s Daughter and Meg Gardiner’s Unsub for Literary Hub (now on Crime Reads).
I compared cult leaders Jim Jones and Charles Manson using Jeff Guinn’s outstanding biographies of both men (originally on Literary Hub, now on Crime Reads).
