The story behind the publication of I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, by Michelle McNamara, a masterful true crime account of the Golden State Killer—the elusive serial rapist turned murderer who terrorized California for over a decade.
Featuring interviews with the author, her husband, Patton Oswalt, and others who worked to publish the book: the L.A. Magazine editor who commissioned the first long-form article about the killer, Nancy Miller, her literary agent, Dan Greenberg, her book editor, Jennifer Barth, and more. The book is described as utterly original and compelling, destined to become a true crime classic, and the story behind its publication is equally remarkable.
