Dear Dawn: Aileen Wuornos In Her Own Words

I received my review copy of Dear Dawn: Aileen Wuornos in Her Own Words from Soft Skull Press today. I am very excited. I have been stalking this book for years, since the last documentary by Nick Broomfield.

If there has ever been a woman who was misunderstood by the entire world it was Aileen.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The world made this killer. This “man hating serial killer” was a direct product of United States society.

She had no choice. This job was laid upon her like the Queen knights her court officers. Our society very literally drove this woman mad.

Rest assured I will devour this book like a banana split and post my review ASAP. I also have a pending interview with the gracious Dawn Botkins, the lifelong friend of Aileen whose letters comprise this book.
I gotta book to read peeps.

Stay tuned.
