Product description

Review

"His greatest work was his 1979 epic The Executioner's Song… a masterpiece of reportage, fiction and stylistic writing" (Observer)

"A deeply unsettling account of a particular ordeal that suggests larger questions: the moralities of power's ends and means, the character of revolutionary fanaticism and the indecipherable humanity that flickers within it...by turns evocative, wise and crisscrossed by fury" (New York Times Book Review)

"A great writer: in the utterly enthralling story of Gary Gilmore's life and crimes Norman Mailer takes one as deeply into the criminal mind as it is possible to get" (Alan Sillitoe)

Book Description

If you were enthralled by Capote's In Cold Blood, read The Executioner's Song
