Panzram: A Journal of Murder

by Harold Schechter Thomas E. Gaddis James O. Long

The brutally graphic memoirs of one of America's most notorious and repentant murderers who killed 21 people and committed thousands of burglaries and numerous acts of violence and sexual abuse. Born in 1891 in Minnesota, he died on the gallows in 1930 after having spent a large portion of his life within the penitentiary system. 'I enjoyed the real hell out of it. Panzram is one of those people who doesn't exist in your mind until you come across him in life or as here, in a book, and then he never leaves you.' -Norman Mailer
