Crime Song: True Crime Stories from Southern Murder Ballads Book Talk

CrimeSong plunges readers into a world of violence against women, murders, familicide, suicides, brutal mob action, and many examples of a failed justice system. This compelling investigation of the gripping true crimes behind American ballads dispels myths and legends and brings to life a cast of characters-both loathsome and innocent-shadowy history, courtroom dramas, murders, mayhem and music. Although these ballads and stories are set in specific times, cultures, and places, they present "timeless, universal themes" -stories that could be "ripped from today's headlines." Registration recommended.
