    I loved We Keep the Dead Close! Definitely one of my favorites this year. It was so compelling and eerie and well done. Rag and Bone and Billion Dollar Loser both sound fascinating and I hadn’t come across either one before — thanks for the introduction to those!

      Oh, that’s good to hear! I’ve been interested in We Keep the Dead Close, but I guess I’m always at least a little nervous about picking up true crime, since it’s a topic that it’s important to handle well. Politics and Prose bookstore has an online event coming up with the author in early November that I’ve been considering and which you might want to check out as well.

        I’ve been especially annoyed lately with the true crime crossed with memoir mini-genre, because they can just be so navel-gazing and poorly done, and yet it seems like more and more are getting published by people who have nothing to do with the crimes themselves and just insert themselves and make it all about them. So as interesting as the premise of We Keep the Dead Close sounded, I was hesitant. But to me it was a perfect example of doing this genre correctly. I thought it was brilliantly written and researched and deeply respectful.

        That’s great to know about the event, I hadn’t heard of it! Will look into it 🙂 Thank you!!

          Thanks Rennie! That’s really helpful. I’ve been bothered by a few books where memoir was mixed poorly with true crime lately as well, so it’s nice to know that’s not a problem here.
