Summary

The Journalist And The Murderer Summary

The Journalist And The Murderer by Janet Malcolm

'Every journalist who is not too stupid or too full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible' In equal measure famous and infamous, Janet Malcolm's book charts the true story of a lawsuit between Jeffrey MacDonald, a convicted murderer, and Joe McGinniss, the author of a book about the crime. Lauded as one of the Modern Libraries 100 Best Works of Nonfiction, The Journalist and the Murderer is fascinating and controversial, a contemporary classic of reportage.
