Product description

Review

Funny and gripping and wonderfully weird . . . It's a tremendous book. I can't praise it too highly (Louis Theroux)

A hilarious and bizarre story that leads where you least expect it. John Safran has for years been one of my favourite journalists - forever pushing the boundaries, funny, startling, a hurricane (Jon Ronson, author of The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test)

Stunning (Men's Style)

A winning combination of memoir, true crime and gonzo journalism . . . a compulsive summer read (Sunday Mail)

One of the best pieces of sustained, rigorous journalism I've read in twenty years. It is absolutely magnificent - smart, and wry, and emotional too (Caroline Overington)

Witty, insightful, compelling - In Cold Blood for our generation (Eddie Perfect)

The elegance of this book is that its axis is a resounding 'perhaps' . . . It is this moral ambivalence that draws readers to the true crime genre, and Safran nails it (Weekend Australian)

[Safran] has written a marvellous book which I cannot put down (Melbourne Observer)

Mississippi is like a trampoline for [Safran's] eccentricities. But the form and content of the story bring out an unfamiliar side of him (Sydney Morning Herald)

John Safran's captivating inquiry into a murder in darkest Mississippi is by turns informative, frightening and hilarious. It is enlivened by a swarm of creepy locals and a torrent of astonishing details--such as hedge clippers put to surgical use in the performance of an official autopsy (John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil)

'Murder in Mississippi is a page turner' (Felicity Garry, QC The Times)

Weaving a tale that is simultaneously about race, failed systems, money, sex, family and simple rage, Safran truly did lose a year in Mississippi, and getting lost with him is a joy (Kirkus reviews)

Book Description

An unlikely journalist, a Mississippi murder plagued by revelations, and a fascinating true-crime story of race, money, sex, and power in the modern American South - all told in the sharply original style of Louis Theroux and Jon Ronson.
