Monster: My True Story by Aileen Wuornos
'I'm a good person inside, but when I get drunk, I just don't know. It's just...when I get drunk, don't mess the fuck with me...'. There have been few female serial killers but Aileen 'Lee' Wuornos was an incredible example of this rare species of death-row inhabitants. All-too-often female prostitutes have been the victims of male serial killers - the killings of Wuornos were the inverse of this. She was a child prostitute after running away from an abusive childhood in the hands of her grandparents straight into a disastrous adulthood of difficult affairs with both men and women and prostitution. Her metamorphosis from victim to attacker had brutal consequences: a stream of dead men. Following a renewed interest in this woman after the film 'Monster' this is her story in her own words.
