Contemporary True Crime

Oct 01, 2017, 11:04 PM

In this episode, Alice and Bethany wrestle with ethical questions around how much they enjoy true crime books, what makes true crime fiction good or bad, and whether fiction inspired by real crimes is any different to non-fiction marketed as true crime.

The books we discuss are:

The Fact of a Body - Alexandria Marzano Lesnevich

The Red Parts - Maggie Nelson

The Adversary - Emmanuel Carrere

Forensics - Val McDermid

See What I Have Done - Sarah Schmidt

Little Deaths - Emma Flint

The Girls - Emma Cline
