Synopses & Reviews

From Powells.com:

Mikal Gilmore's family history is a ghost that lingers long after you close the cover. His brother Gary's infamous choice to pay an eye for an eye after murdering two young Mormon men was the grain of sand in the oyster that is Norman Mailer's Executioner's Song. The story is about the entire family (four boys, their sad mother, their abusive father) and is sweet and horrific at the same time. A look at Portland, Oregon, in the 1950s and a history of blood-letting complete this intriguing and very American true story. Recommended by Amy

Publisher Comments:

The most powerful and haunting book of our time. Destined to be an American classic, this book tells more than the story of a troubled American family--it tells the story of a troubled America.
