We Keep the Dead Close: A Murder at Harvard and a Half of Century of Silence; Becky Cooper Grand Central Publishing - 2020
MORNING OF GENERALS
"IT WAS THE WARMEST IT had been in more than a week, but Bostonians turning on their morning radio broadcast woke up to gale warnings along the coast. In Cambridge, across the Charles River, the day was equally grim. A wintery mix of fog and rain and snow hung over the city, and the streets of Harvard Square were quiet.
A delivery person piled stacks of that day's Harvard Crimson inside the undergraduate houses. The front page was a black-and-white picture of a girl curled up in fetal position on the floor of one of the campus libraries. Her head was propped on a book. Her feet were bare. She had on jeans and a sweater and looked more like a body than a person. The caption read, There was a girl who fell asleep on her book and dreamed, and there was the boy who dreamed of the girl asleep on her book, and...Don't let the times get you down."
I wanted to read a non-fiction and this one has been on my shelves since late last year, it's almost 500 pages with sources etc. but I'm half way through and really liking it so far.
What do you think, read more or pass?
