The Book Show #1444 - Jon Krakauer

Mar 22, 2016

  In his new book, Missoula, journalist Jon Krakauer investigates a spate of campus rapes that occurred in Missoula over a four-year period.

Taking the town as a case study for a crime that is sadly prevalent throughout the nation, Krakauer documents the experiences of five victims: their fear and self-doubt in the aftermath; the skepticism directed at them by police, prosecutors, and the public; their bravery in pushing forward and what is cost them.

He is the author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, Under the Banner of Heaven and Three Cups of Deceit.
