Poet and the Murderer
ISBN: 184115587X Global Overview for this book
3 journalers for this copy...
I hadn't realized from the book's description that it was about the same man involved in The Mormon Murders, but when I read the dust jacket, his name rang a bell right away. It's been a while since I read that book, but it will be interesting to see the story from another angle.
Here's an interview with the author where he discusses the two complicated people at the heart of his book.
I will count this as book #29/51 for NancyNova's 2015 MultiYear States Challenge (Utah).

I've yet to read the Book of Mormon (or see the musical, for that matter), but Mark Twain's description of it as "chloroform in print" doesn't seem like much of a recommendation.
I enjoyed the loving description of handwriting in Chapter 10, although it struck me as a bit sad, given that in the years since this book was published, hand writing anything is becoming more and more of a lost art; on the other hand it made me more aware of my own handwriting and I'm trying to take a little more time and write a little more neatly. ;)
